More Glory for Cross Country Squad
Under the leadership of longtime coach, Dan Walsh, The Wheatley School's varsity boys' cross-country team captured its fifth consecutive Nassau County Championship, which qualified the team for its fifth straight trip to the New York State cross country championship meet.

The championship meet was held at Bethpage State Park.
