Kreft & Hostettler win at the Midwest Meet of Champions!


In the championship boy's and girl's races at the Midwest Meet of Champions, D2 runners, Sr Zach Kreft (OH #16) of Buckeye Valley and Sr. Michelle Hostettler of West Holmes raced to wins.  Kreft, the #2 ranked D2 runner in the State,  passed OH #4, Olentangy Orange's Hunter Moore with just over 200m to go and held on to win.  It was a PR and very big win for Kreft as he defeated not only Moore, but a very strong boy's field that included  Solon Sr. Joe Riordan (OH #6), Sr. Andre Bolloam-Godbott of Brunswick (OH #7) , Jr. Matt Scrape of Pickerington Central (OH #9),, Sr. Matt Bull of Mentor (OH #10) and Sr. C.j. Ambosio  of St. Ignatius (OH #11).  (photo M. Stonecipher)
