GAMBIER — Logan Meyer doesn’t stand out in a crowd.
Surrounded by his cross-country teammates, the Mount Vernon senior is somewhat dwarfed by their tall, lanky statures.
By the end of Saturday’s race, Meyer was 10 feet tall.
Meyer became the first Mount Vernon runner in 11 years to finish in first place at the annual Mount Vernon Kiwanis John Fair Invitational, held at Kenyon College. His run of 16:57.8 was the best by nearly 20 seconds.
“That’s the first time I’ve gotten first place in any cross-country meet,” Meyer said, after taking a few minues to soak it in. “We’ve been training since mid-summer, so it feels good to have all that hard work pay off.”
