Jefferson’s Graf and Colbert Shatter Poor House Farm Course Records
October 10, 2012 - The Jefferson boys and Musselman girls posted convincing wins on Wednesday under breezy and rapidly cooling conditions in Martinsburg, WV to win their respective league titles. Running on what may be one of the toughest courses in the state featuring two significant water crossings and steep, rocky hills, Jefferson’s Ryan Graf and Abby Colbert each shattered the existing record on the newly reconfigured Poor House Farm course by approximately a minute each.
