Camyn Viger (Jr., Plainfield South) continues his hot streak and winning ways by taking the Palatine Meet of Champions with a time of 14:43. The loaded field featured some of the state's top harriers and the top runner from the state of Kentucky Sami Hattab (Sr., Louisville St. Xavier)
"Alex" Alexander Krieg (Fr., Palatine) continues to dazzle the state's top undercard races by winning the Palatine Invitational MOC Frosh-Soph 2.5 mile race in 12:41. Krieg who ran 15:12 in the three-mile recently took down the meet record and won by 16 seconds.
