ZT wins regional championship
Adrian Ross of Unioto and Paint Valley's Daniel Gardner have been the top two runners in the
SVC all year long, and now they have both proven to be the best in their respective regions of
the state. Ross, who runs in D-II, ran a 16:10 to capture his regional championship. For
Gardner, the winning time in capturing his D-III individual title was 16:22. Gardner was
running only as an individual as his Bearcats failed to qualify as a team for the regional;
however, he did have teammate Riley Markko running with him as Markko failed to qualify
for state. As for Ross, he had his entire Unioto team with him as the Shermans entered as the
district champions. Unioto finished third in the regional, and they will advance to the State
Cross Country Meet next week.

Taylor Hatfield finished third to help lead her Lady Pioneers to the D-II Regional
Championship. Zane Trace's winning total was 69 points ... a total that was 23 points lower
than second-place Granville.
