Saratoga Springs duo continue family legacy at cross country sectionals

By Sean Martin


“SARATOGA SPRINGS — Rick and Dana Bush are like most, if not all, of the parents who will head to Saratoga Spa State Park hoping for the best as their children compete for a sectional title when the Section II cross country championships are contested Friday. 

What separates the Bush family from others is Rick and Dana, parents of Saratoga senior Ryan and sophomore Emily, are former Section II champions themselves with both children toeing the starting line as clear contenders in their respective Class A races.”
