"F-M is extraordinary, we ran pretty well today but they are just an amazing team," Corning head coach Ray Lawson said. "I thought we really executed the race plan well. Bryce had the best race i've seen him run, I think our top three guys ran very well. Steven, our fourth, ran his best race of the season. All of our guys represented Corning well."

As a group we've ran as well as we've ran all season."

“Alyssa ran another great race today and had her best finish at a state meet on a deceptively challenging course," Elmira Notre Dame head coach Chris Wise said. "Both Piper and Steven were at states for the first time and they both had very good races, not getting pulled into going out too fast and then they ran smart afterward. I am very proud of how they topped off a very successful season for us by doing well at States!"
