In 2018, the Sabers had their finest season in the 10-year history of the program, finishing 3rd in the AAIS and 6th at the NYSAISAA Championships. For the first time in program history, each of the Sabers’ top-5 scoring runners earned medals in the AAIS Championship Race. In 2017, Spence had its second student-athlete qualify and compete in the NY State Federation Cross Country Championship, which includes the top runners from public, Catholic, independent and PSAL schools across NY State. In the fall of 2015, Spence earned the team’s first top three team finish in the program’s short history. For the fall of 2019, the Sabers are focused on taking another step forward at both the AAIS Championship and the NYSAISAA state meet. The team will count upon its depth and experience to build upon its foundation of success.
Practice is Monday through Friday and will most often be held in Central Park, and the team will also train on various other course terrains in preparation for AAIS and NYSAISAA races conducted at Van Cortlandt Park. Athletes are required to run in proper running shoes.
