Leading off today:
Warwick ran its streak to 17 consecutive
Section 9 boys cross country championships Friday at Bear Martin by a 37-68 margin over Monroe-Woodbury in Class A.
"It's good to have good team history," Warwick runner Tanner Senius told the Times Herald-Record after his team placed seven runners in the top 17 -- led by D.J. Peterson and Matt Adolph placing second and third, respectively.
M-W's Jack Jibb was the individual champion in 15:17.
Milestone alert: Brentwood is heading off to its seventh straight Section 11 semifinal in boys soccer following its 3-1 win over Hauppauge in Class AA.
Ever Torres closed out the Indians' scoring with his 72nd career goal -- tying the senior forward for No. 5 on the all-time Suffolk County list. The victory also made Ron Eden the eighth Section 11 coach to hit 300 victories.
Eden is 300-49-24 in 19 seasons with Brentwood.
"I did not play one game of the 300 wins so it's really a credit to the kids more than anything," Eden told Newsday. "I owe a lot to the parents and club coaches because they played a role in mentoring our players before they even got to me. For me, this is a program accomplishment; not a coach's accomplishment."
Leaving turmoil behind: You may recall the very odd firing of Bill Hueber as Greece Athena's boys soccer coach over the summer, when one of the votes against his reappointment came from a school board member once cut from the varsity by Hueber.
Less than three months later, new coach Mike Butler has completed Hueber's work.
First-half goals from Ryan Lindeman and Jason Siracuse gave the Trojans a 2-0 upset of Pittsford Mendon for the Section 5 Class A-1 title.
Butler coached at Athena before, directing the girls soccer team to two sectional crowns and a NYSPHSAA championship in 2004.
"I knew coming in the first day we had a lot of talent and I felt more confident as we went along," Butler told the Democrat and Chronicle. "I did know the kids, coaching some of them and teaching most of them. That transition helped and in the end, kids want to play."
