Coop girls get first at CSC|

Kristin Ratliff placed second Saturday at Poland High’s 2.95-mile course, leading Cooperstown’s girls to their first Center State Conference team championship in program history.

Ratliff crossed in 19:51, marking one of two sub-20-minute times as Hamilton’s Sage Hurta won in 19:08.4.

“This is a big deal,” said Cooperstown coach Jessie Ravage, who earned her first girls conference title in her 20th season as head coach.

Samantha Fanion contributed a fifth in 20:19 for Cooperstown, which got a 12th from Jamie Zoltick (21:50) en route to a winning team total of 54 points. Canastota placed second in the 13-team meet, with 89 points.

CSC All-Star Daniel Francis paced Cooperstown’s 10th-place boys finish. He crossed in 18:38 to finish 30th overall.

Nicholas Spina’s victory in 16:21.3 led Sauquoit Valley to the team title with 53 points. Cooperstown had 262 points.
