Pictured is AAA champion Cody Pelliccioni The WV 2008 State Cross Country Championship held in Ona, WV at Cabell Midland High School had a few surprises, a few expectations, and one Status Quo. Overall there were 19 National Elites as recognized by Milesplit, there was one State course record, and there was a repeat individual champion. It was a warm and beautiful day for running and the amazing performances put on by the harriers of West Virginia were evident. Be sure to check out all of the links to athletes, teams, photos (WV 2008 State XC Photo Album), and more embedded in the article. We will start with the AA-A boys race which got things started.
I hope to post recaps by tomorow (Sunday) evening. It was nice seeing everyone today. Congratulations to Shady Spring Girls, Ravenswood boys (9th in a row), Wheeling Park boys and University girls on their championships.
