FFCS grad Scott honored by ECC

CENTRAL ISLIP – For the second-straight week, Fonda-Fultonville graduate Mike Scott, a redshirt freshman on the LIU Post men’s cross country team, ran his way to East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week honors, the league announced Monday.

Scott helped the Pioneers to a first-place showing in the Division II, III, and Junior College race at the LIU Post Invitational on Saturday.

Scott finished third overall in the 8,000-meter race with a personal-best time of 25:40.90.
