My bad! XC corrections...

October 31, 2008 - Erik Brown
You would think that the parent of a former AA boys’ at-large PIAA State XC qualifier would be the last person to forget to recognize this year’s District 6 at-large qualifiers for AA boys and girls. But that is exactly what I did. For that I am truly sorry.
The District 6 AA girls’ field included 145 runners. The AA boys’ field had 167. So, to earn one of the precious few at-large spots is truly a significant accomplishment. Without further adieu then:
Leah Anne Wirfel, Forest Hills, 18:26
Hannah Miller, Laurel Valley, 19:34
Katrina Woods, Mount Union, 20:09
Alyssa Taddie, Homer Center, 20:11
Shannon Yarger, Penns Valley, 20:21
Alisha Jordon, Penns Valley, 20:24
Rachel Rajter, Westmont Hilltop, 20:46
Lauren Simcox, Phillipsburg-Osceola, 20:53
Emiley Stapleton, Bellwood-Antis, 21:26
Jackie Beisel, Penns Manor, 21:28
Jim Spisak, Bishop McCort, 16:19
Andy Luksik, Bishop McCort, 17:24
Max Penrose, Laurel Valley, 17:25
Alex Woodrow, Marion Center, 17:36
Aaron Keeney, Huntingdon Area, 17:48
Jason Dean, Westmont Hilltop, 17:49
Abram Nace, Lewistown Area, 17:53
Chad King, Bishop McCort, 17:55
Phil Steinberg, Central Cambria, 17:57
Jonathan Makoczy, Forest Hills, 17:57
As I mentioned in my last post, C.J. Weimer from United was the odd man out in the boys’ AA race. He finished in 17:58. A quick look at the last three times listed above shows you what a battle took place in the sprint to the finish line with four runners vying for the final three qualifying spots.
Best wishes to all of these athletes for a great race at states on Saturday!
Next post – my day in the Rothrock State Forest at the Tussey Mountainback 50 mile Ultramarathon. Thanks for reading!
