Penns Valley boys’ cross country runner Chris Colwell is a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.
Colwell helped the Rams race to victory in the Mountain League Cross County Championships on Wednesday at Spring Mills.
Running in wet conditions, Colwell blitzed the field with a time of 17 minutes, 52 seconds. He finished 15 seconds ahead of teammate Adam Mothersbaugh and 21 seconds of Nick Fuller as the Rams swept the top three places.
Penns Valley, with five of the top 11 finishers, totaled 26 team points to easily outdistance second-place Bellefonte, which had 62 points.
The triumph was Colwell’s first as a varsity team member. He will be in action again Saturday as the Rams compete in the District 6 Championships at Forest Hills.
