  • Senior Vinny Leo passes the 2k mark. Leo ran a 28:26 8k. “This may have been my last ODACs; I don’t know if I will be back for another cross country season. I gave all I could give in this race,” said Leo. “The season is still not done, because we have regionals to look up to. Then track, but if this is my last cross country season, it’s not the best season I’ve had, but I can look back and be grateful. We live to run another day.”
