Bulldogs state champs again

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Finishing a close fourth man for GMC was Chase Sheffield in eighth place, running 19:18 on the tough course.

Rounding out the scoring for the Bulldogs was Zach Spiler in 19th overall with a time of 20:05, followed by Logan Kelleher in 31st in a time of 20:51 and Andrew Weimer who finished 36th with a time of 21:28.

Stevenson credits much of the success to community coach Jeff Crain, who trains the GMC boys cross country team.

The proud head coach believes it’s Crain who has instilled the focus and discipline it takes to be back-to-back state champions.

“Besides being a good coach, he’s just such a good role model for them,” Stevenson said. “It’s priceless.”

As if the state championship was not enough, the young Bulldog cross country team had the opportunity to watch other state races on Saturday to gain knowledge and experience for the future.

“It was so much different, especially since we were there at noon so they could see some of the bigger races,” Stevenson said. “We still have a pretty young team. It’s exciting and it’s just so good for the program.”
