Lexington Runs Away With County Meet

Lexington's dominance over the area in cross-country continued on Monday, as the Minutemen boys and girls took top honors at the Richland County Championships.

Zane Sturts (17:22) ran away from the field in the boys heat, dusting second place finisher Brett Cortelletti (17:54) of Ontario by 32 seconds. The pair of stud runners were side by side for about the first mile before Sturts pulled away, which surprised the Lexington junior.

"I thought it was going to be neck to neck until the kick." Sturts says. "So it was definitely a surprise."

Cortelletti says he wasn't thrilled with the second place finish, but that it wouldn't take him long to get back into form. The Warriors top runner also says he's looking at the big picture and that, "state cross country is my ultimate goal for this year."

On the girls side it was a one-two finish for Lady Lex, with Lillian Freundlich (20:44) and Susan Fain (21:06) taking the top spots. Like Sturts, Freundlich also took a little while to warm up, then left the rest of the field in her rearview.

"I take about a mile to warm up." Freundlich says. "But then once I hit mile two I'm just ready to go."

"She's great." Fain says of her teammate. "When you see someone so far ahead of you it can be discouraging, while encouraging at the same time. I just try to chase her poney tail and keep her in my eye view."

It was actually Madison's Sarah Baker (21:13) that both Fain and Freundlich were following for the entire first mile. She would eventually fall back to third, but says she's happy with her performance.

"I'm pleased because last year I got fourth, so it's a little better than last year." Baker says.

The Minutemen boys won the tournament with 34 points, followed by second place Shelby with 59 and Crestview with 74.  On the girls side, Lady Lex made it a clean sweep with 21, Shelby was second with 54, followed by Plymouth with 89.
