Thriller in the Hills: Tech Cross Country Splits with Skyline

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Personal records fell left and right as OAL co-favorites Oakland Tech and Skyline tangled in a hilly race under ideal conditions.  Led by Adam Gardere, who led wire-to-wire for the individual win, the Tech boys’ team claimed 6 of the top 7 spots to win by a solid margin, 17-42.  The day’s most impressive performance was turned in by sophomore Matthew Trueblood who completed three tough laps with a strong kick and energy to spare.

On the girls’ side, despite an exciting victory by freshman Johanna Ross, Skyline prevailed by the slimmest of margins 27-28.  The teams will meet again on November 20 with the Oakland Athletic League title on the line.
