    2022 - 2023
    Head Coach: Nich Galasso

    Home of the Sabers: Fall 2019 AAIS 2nd Place and NYSAISAA 3rd Place Team
    

    In 2019, the Sabers had their finest season in the 11-year history of the program, finishing 2nd in the AAIS and 3rd at the NYSAISAA Championships. Following up on a historic 2018 AAIS milestone, where the first time in program history, each of the Sabers' top-5 scoring runners earned medals in the AAIS Championship Race; in 2019 Sabers' top medalists were all 9th,10th or 11th graders, setting the stage for continued program growth and excellence in 2020.

    In 2017, Spence had its second student-athlete qualify and compete in the NY State Federation Cross Country Championship, an event that features 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 2020, 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 now established 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.
