finished 9th and 5th respectively in team scoring to help seal State High's team win.
AAA boys 800 meter champion Zach Brehm of Carlisle is starting to show the rest of the state his wide range of distances he can excel in. On Friday, he took on the Penn State cross country layout and came out on top with a winning time of 15:46 to win by a small margin of 8 seconds over Griffin Molino of South Williamsport. Brehm nearly inspired his squad to the top of the team standings, but his Carlisle sqaud came up 7 points short of State College and their 46 second 1-5 spread 57-64. The winners were led by a 4th place finish from Will Cather and a 6th place finish from Chris Golembeski.

For the girls, Mount Lebanon impressed for the 2nd week running. After a big victory at last week's Red, White and Blue Invitational at Baldwin, Mount Lebanon carried that momentum to Penn State and cruised to a big 61-144 win over State College. The winners were led by a runner up finish from Kelsey Potts (17:50) and a 4th place finish from Jillian Hunsberger (18:16). Cumberland Valley's Mady Clahane finished between the Mount Lebanon duo with a time of 18:09 and a 3rd place finish.
