Taking home the hardware.
Fairmont Senior’s boys’ cross country team is now Class AA state champions after they competed at Cabell Midland High School on Saturday.
Having a team combined score of 92, the Polar Bears were led by Mr. Cross Country himself — Nick Trefz.
Trefz placed first in the state meet, while posting a time of 15:52.20.
Trefz’s performance was so astonishing that he defeated state-runner up Caleb Moore by more than 12 seconds. Moore finished the event with a time of 16:04.40.
As a team, the Polar Bears literally ran away with the gold, since second-place Frankfort tallied a total score of 111, which was 19 points shy of FSHS.
