Heading to Hebron
Senior Brett Cortelletti finished 8th at the Division II Regional Cross Country meet, Saturday, October 25th earning a ticket to the State Cross Country Tournament, next Saturday. It wasn’t a PR time, but it didn’t matter; all he needed was to finish in the top 16 to make it to Hebron’s National Trail Raceway, home of the state championships. Taking first place in both the boys and girls was Lexington, which is great for Brett since he has many friends on the Lexington squad and will feel right at home running with the Minutemen.   

There were many rooting for Brett: family, teammates, coaches, and more importantly, other competitors. Brett has made a name for himself; he is definitely a worthy competitor, but many appreciate his good sportsmanship. It’s not uncommon to see many an opponent come up and shake Brett’s hand or pat his back and wish him well before and after contests. Ontario should be proud to have Brett represent our school and community at the big dance for cross country. Good luck Brett…we’re all cheering for you.
