PEORIA – Kaneland senior boys cross country runner Matt Richtman was barely edged for the Class 2A Kaneland Sectional title by Sterling senior Jacob Gebhardt on Oct. 28.
That nearly happened again Saturday at Detweiller Park with the state championship on the line. This time, however, Richtman came out on top.
“I saw him out of the corner of my eye, and last week he took that one step ahead,” Richtman said. “This meet I saw him out of the corner of my eye again and made sure I gave it everything I had.”
