 There are less than 20 days until the West Virginia High School cross country state meet, and the men’s AAA race looks to be an exciting one.  With names like Jacob Burcham and Cody Pelliccioni, one tends to forget the other very talented harriers in the hunt for an individual state title.  One in particular is the senior from Fairmont Senior, Dayton McVicker.  In a sport where placing matters more than times, McVicker is showing he has what it takes to contend for the title.  He recently won the Times Invitational, beating 93 other runners and some of the top competition in the state.  Earlier in the season McVicker placed 1st of 109 runners at the popular West Virginia early season meet, the Chick-Fil-A Invitational.  I look forward to watching McVicker mix it up with top competition in the state!
