FREDERICKTOWN — There was a strange object spotted in the sky at the 2013 Denny Stevens Invitational Cross Country meet in Fredericktown on Tuesday. For an event that is annually run in misty, cloudy, foggy and even rainy weather, the sun shining down on the Kokosing Reservoir was a rare and welcome sight.
Those in attendance saw a meet record 850 runners from 28 schools and, quite possibly, the only cross country team that gets the school marching band to perform at its home meets.
The host Fredericktown Freddies gave their band plenty to play for, finishing third in both the varsity boys (127 points) and girls (102) divisions. The top two boys teams overall were Fairfield Christian (118) and Mapleton (121), while the top two girls teams were Mount Gilead (49) and Pleasant (74).
Senior Emily Roberts was the highest finishing local varsity girl, placing seventh for the Freddies with a time of 20:40.98.
