The Shenendehowa Men’s Varsity Cross Country team dominated long-distance running from 2002 to 2004.

Runners Jacob Gurzler, Ryan Gaedje, Alex Grout, Scott Mindel and Phil Roach were known throughout the United States for their tenacity and two year undefeated winning streak that included numerous local, state and national championships.

Of the five All-Americans to lead Shenendehowa’s cross country program at that time, Scott Mindel continues to compete across the country, representing Saratoga County in some of the nation’s most recognized, prestigious races.

Mindel placed 19th overall in the 2012 Boston Marathon and ranked seventh among American runners; finishing the 26.2 mile race in just two hours and twenty seven minutes. This feat landed Mindel an official sponsorship from Saucony.

This week’s “Featured Millennial” is Saratoga County native Caitlin Sheridan-Bailey.

Bailey grew up in Clifton Park, NY and serves as a leading role model for her peers; serving the community as a proud citizen, soldier and mother.

After graduating from high school in 2006, Sheridan-Bailey went on to earn a license in cosmetology before enlisting in the United States Navy in 2010.

According to the United States Department of Defense, almost 20% of all applicants fail to graduate from the NAVY’s boot camp. While other people couldn’t cut it, Sheridan-Bailey left boot camp to become a Gunners Mate on the USS New York; a warship built with 7.5 tons of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center.

Donna The Buffalo Are Set To Perform Live At The Putnam Den - Expected Interview Coming Soon

Donna The Buffalo | The Putnam Den | Saratoga Springs New York
Millennials across Saratoga County seem to be more hip to alternative forms of art and music than 18-29 year-olds in other surrounding communities.

With constant references in our “Featured Millennial” section to Saratoga Springs being a hub for a large variety of unique art programs to the tangible points of interest that include an enormous amphitheater and multiple music venues; it is no wonder why “the arts” are the leading staple and image of the county.

Because of this culture, it is also no wonder that “The Herd” will most likely have a substantial presence when Donna The Buffalo (AKA Dawn of the Buffalo) arrive to perform at The Putnam Den on February 6.
