Gamesmanship


#1

There were suspicions about Northport boys cheating at Manhattan. Seems it’s true. Didn’t run a Varsity- they ran as JV and/or Sophs, and put all their freshman in the same race. Heard they have to return shirts, medals, and trophies. Grounds for dismissal or not?


#2

I don’t think that Northport’s motive was malicious. They simply may not have wanted to wait around for a varsity race. I understand the rule and its purpose, and if they broke it, yes, they should return their awards.


#3

Anybody who cares enough about JV awards to a) intentionally run varsity guys in a JV race in order to win, or b) turn in a team who does (a), needs to get a life.


#4

oh, wait until the rightfully deserving JV team hears the news.

celebrations will be had.


#5

I’m sure there is more details to this than we’ve heard. Perhaps there team was thinking they would be outclassed in the other races and this would be suitable for them; although, they did get first…hmmm. Rethinking this line of defense


#6

As far as I know, Northport won a frosh and a soph race, not a JV. Just to clarify.


#7

they didn’t run their #1, tim odin, but it looks like they ran everyone else… hmm


#8

Meet rules state that you don’t have to run a Varsity team to enter athletes in both the Freshman and Sophomore Divisions.
