Fairmont Senior’s boys’ cross country team is now Class AA state champions after they competed at Cabell Midland High School on Saturday.

Having a team combined score of 92, the Polar Bears were led by Mr. Cross Country himself — Nick Trefz.

Trefz placed first in the state meet, while posting a time of 15:52.20.

Trefz’s performance was so astonishing that he defeated state-runner up Caleb Moore by more than 12 seconds. Moore finished the event with a time of 16:04.40.
