RVHS boys’ cross country team headed to state

| October 27, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWARSAW – On Oct. 25, the boys’ team also competed in the regional cross country meet at Pickerington North High School. River View, who placed fifth, last year at the regional meet, was itching for another shot to redeem itself and make it to state. The Black Bears did just that in placing third behind first place Sheridan and second place Piketon. Steven Scheetz finished in eighth with a time of 16:53, Michael Hardesty in 20th (17:16), Drew Everhart in 23rd (17:26), Chris St. Clair in 37th (17:45), Jakob Eick in 55th (18:08), and rounding out the Bears’ team was Tyler Gunn in 66th (18:20), and Nick Wilson in 68th (18:21). The Black Bears will return to the state cross country meet for only the third time in school history. The last team to make it to state qualified 29 years ago.
