Another example of how important passing just one runner can be. Just ask Riverview, which took a one-point decision over Center, 40-41. They took three of the first five places behind the 2nd of Allison Garda. But then they waited, and when the counting was done, they had the Freedom Invitational title. Defending AA state champ Rachel Erny of Brentwood went 19:46 to win by almost a minute.
Sewickley Academy\'s Kenny Burgess won the boys race in 17:17, but Gary and Greg Smith, both Washington seniors, went 2-3 to help lead their team to a 82 to 97 win over Sewickely.
