When the gun went off for the 2014 Richland County Cross Country championships, so did Ontario's Brett Cortelletti. Coming off a fourth place finish in the 3,200 meters at the state track meet back on June, 7th, Cortelletti spent all but the very beginning of the race running by himself finishing first in a time of 17:35.

While Cortelletti ran away from the field to win the individual title, it was Shelby who won the overall boys championship placing six runners Danny Friebel, Mitch Noel, Robert Moore, Joe Emerson, Darien Payne and Andy Robinson in the top 12 with Friebel finishing as runner-up catching Plymouth's Daren Gies near the finish gate in 19:13. On the girls side, Shelby made it a clean sweep of the County Championships winning the event by placing five runners in the top ten led by Macy Lynch winning in a time of 21:36, teammate Danni Hoffman was second in 22:25, while Shelby's Mallary Lynch was third in 22:59. Shelby's Marrisa Lynch was 6th and Jenna Gonzales 10th.

Defending team champ Lexington opted out of this years race running instead at the OHSAA Early Season Invite last Saturday held at Hebron, Ohio. The Lexington boy's had won the event the last ten years, while the girls the last three. Prior to that, the Shelby girls last won the RCCC meet in 2009.
