Crews from the NBC "Today" show's weekend edition were at Fayetteville-Manlius High School this week, filming a segment on the cross country program that is scheduled to air Sunday morning.
The piece will feature members of the state and national champion boys and girls cross country teams and head coach Bill Aris. The Hornets won New York state titles last fall and went on to win the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland, Ore.
It was the eighth national title for the girls team, and the first for the boys. No school has ever swept the boys and girls events.
Sunday's segment will be shown locally on WSTM-3. The program runs from 8 to 9 a.m. In the event breaking news occurs, the piece could be rescheduled.
