BIG SPRING — The State College boys’ cross country team put five runners in the top 22 and raced to the title in the Mid-Penn Conference Championship meet Saturday afternoon at Big Spring High School.
Will Cather led the charge with a clocking of 16 minutes, 48 seconds to finish sixth overall. He was followed by Chris Golembeski’s ninth-place effort in 16:54, Kyle Adams’ 14th-place finish in 16:59, Matt Beyerle’s 17:19 for 21st and Alex Milligan’s 17:24 for 22nd place.
“This was awesome,” State College coach Dave Felice said. “It was a super effort from our runners today. They came in probably ranked fourth, but they ran well, packed it up toward the front and earned a great win.”
The Little Lions racked up 72 points as a team to get the best of Carlisle’s 93.
State College will be back on the course at the District 6 meet Oct. 26.
