The Ringgold boys cross country team captured section titles at Mingo Park on Tuesday with wins against Connellsville, Uniontown, Laurel Highlands, and Albert Gallatin. The boys went 8-0 to close out the section season. This is the first time in Ringgold history that both the boys and girls won a section title in the same year, and this is the third consecutive year that the boys team has won the section title!
Freshman Ryan Pajak led the Rams with a first place finish, tying the school record set in 1992 with a phenomenal time of 16:09.
Senior Lucas Pajak (2nd; 16:18) and junior Lorenzo Zeni (3rd; 17:03) made it a clean sweep for Ringgold.
Ben Daerr (5th; 17:16), Nick Whaley (7th; 17:45), David Molisee (15th; 18:40) and Aidan Fausnaught (18th; 18:42) all contributed to clinching the section championship.
The boys will compete in a handful of big meets during the first couple weeks of October in preparation for the WPIAL championships.
