The cross country Section XI State Qualifier has been pushed back a day due to inclement weather in the area. The meet at Sunken Meadow State Park will start at 2 p.m. Saturday.

The race times are as follows:

Boys Class A: 2 p.m.
Girls Class A: 2:30 p.m.
Boys Class B: 3 p.m.
Girls Class B: 3:25 p.m.
Boys Class C/D: 3:55 p.m.
Girls Class C/D: 4:2o p.m.

Both the Mattituck and Southold girls and boys teams are competing in the Class C/D races. Mattituck is a Class C team and Southold is Class D. The Mattituck girls and Southold boys are both defending county champs.

Last year, Hurricane Sandy forced the state qualifier to race to be canceled entirely. The state qualifiers were determined based on the division championship race.

The state championship is Nov. 9 at Queensbury High School.
