October 30, 2013By John Davalos of Archbishop Alter High School
This past Saturday, October 26, the Alter Boys Cross Country Season concluded at the OHSAA Regional Meet.
The boy's team had a very successful season, with 3rd Place finishes at both the Fairmont Firebird Invitational and the GCL Championship Meet. The team placed 6th at the competitive OHSAA Southwest District Championships. The District had 6 teams ranked in the top 20 in the state, 3 of which advanced to the OHSAA State Championship Meet. While the entire team did not advance to the OHSAA Regional Meet, senior Eric Ledford qualified as an individual with his 4th place finish at the District Championships.
At the OHSAA Regional Meet, Eric represented the Knights with another strong performance as he wrapped up an outstanding high school cross-country career. Eric has a lifetime personal best of 16:19, which he set at the GCL Championship meet in 2012. He has been a 3 time GCL 1st Team selection in Cross Country and was part of the GCL Championship team in 2010. That same year he helped the Alter Boys Cross Country Team qualify to the OHSAA State Championship Meet where they placed 9th. In 2012 Eric qualified to the OHSAA State Championship Meet as an individual.
Congratulations to Eric Ledford and the Alter Boys Cross Country Team on their season.
