HEBRON – Franklin Monroe sophomore Cole Good finished his sophomore season with a 50th place finish in the Ohio High School Athletic Association Division III boys state cross country meet.
Good finished the Division III boys race in a time of 16:48.7, less than two seconds behind fellow Cross County Conference runner Korry Hamlin of Bethel.
“I think it was a really good race,” Good said. “I felt really good about it, felt strong, and it was really fun to run.”
At the first mile marker Good was in 35th place with a time of 5:03.6. He dropped to 45th at the two mile marker with a time of 10:36.1 on his way to his 50th place finish.
“It’s a really competitive race, and it was faster than I thought it was going to be so it pushed me a little bit,” Good said. “It was a fun run.”
Good said he was very happy with how his sophomore year of cross country went. His great season has him excited for the spring and track and field.
“I’m pumped for track now,” he said. “I’ve got a lot more goals and a lot more different people to beat. That will be fun.”
Colonel Crawford junior Chad Johnson won the Division III boys state championship with a time of 15:18.4.
Fort Loramie won the Division III boys team state championship title.
