Junior Dan Santino, the Chicago Catholic League champion, won the race, of Bethesda that lead into residential neighborhood streets of Chevy Chase.
I was near Newman at the. Among other things, Khan was now among the top 25 or so runners in the race—and he was still moving forward. He must have passed 50 runners in two minutes to get there.

Korabik and Santino were just off the lead in the front pack. Dugas was around 30th, with Weber not far behind in the top 40, chasing hard.
Kallin Khan found a clear path to run on the pavement. Halfway through the race the Wolfpack had three runners in the top 15, with two more trailing at around 30th—for a total under It was a virtual dead heat with New Trier and York—with Loyola close behind. The overall team race was clearer, too. York had moved into position.
But they now had three runners up at the front of the race.
Kyle Mattes of York was at the back of that front pack. But they were back at about 30th place. Still, York looked to be winning the race after the mile with around 80 points. Taylor Dugas from Ignatius was in this mix, but a bit farther back, with Andy Weber from Ignatius chasing from behind the York runners.
We got our next look at the runners just after the halfway mark. Newman marks his video as 1. Mroz was still firmly in charge. Most of the runners were in the same place.
Cotsirilos, Afifi, and Santacruz.

But Dugas had begun to fade, falling just behind teammate Andy Weber in 35th and 38th. Loyola still had Carroll running with Korabik, and Brombach up front in the teens, but Swenson had begun to fade.
It was clear at this point of the race that York was in trouble. Mattes was running around tenth, but Plowman had suddenly fallen all the way back to the York group of Denning, May, and Bashqawi, still running around 30th. The team score, with less than a mile to go, appeared to be something like this: New Trier 95, YorkIgnatiusand Loyola New Trier, of course, would close the race out with the best finishing charge—and a total of 79 points.
Cotsirilos surged in the last half mile all the way to fifth.

Afifi would finish 18th, Santacruz 23rd, and Om Kanwar 30th. For York, Mroz took the win, with Mattes 10th; then Basqawi, Denning, and May would finish together in 27th, 28th, and 29th. Ignatius and Loyola struggled to the finish—each losing a large number of spots from key performers. On that grass patch, Dugas slipped and fell on the turn, partly, it would seem, out of exhaustion; he had run the race too aggressively up front.
Patrick Manglano started th out of —and he finished 53rd. But almost magically, just as Dugas fell, Manglano appeared behind him. He had moved steadily through the race from the very back at the start.

But even at the 2. He obviously did so. As he entered the track to discover Dugas on the ground, Manglano seemed to pause for a moment, reaching down almost to touch his teammate on the shoulder—and then he charged forward after the runners ahead of him.2013 IHSA 3A Boys State Finals Cross Country
He would finish 53rd in the team scoring. Dugas would get to his feet and struggle home in 80th place overall, losing 40 points in the last half mile.
Meanwhile, with about a quarter mile left in the race, Teddy Brombach of Loyola was running just outside of the top ten. Then he inexplicably slowed to a jog; later it was said he had some kind of cramp. He finished just ahead of Manglano, in 48th. But our drama at number five could not overshadow—or detract from—our strong team performance at the front of the race. Santino ran what was arguably the best race of his young career, as he held on to fourth place in Korabik was 11th in Khan, after his remarkable charge in the first mile, faded a little bit in the last mile to 25th, but it was his fifth personal best time in five weeks as he ran Weber had moved slowly forward throughout the race to finish 34th The moments after the sectional race are a nervous vigil, as teams try to calculate their results—and those of their opponents.
I initially gave my group inaccurate information, telling them we had safely scored around points, our number earlier in the race. We had clearly been beaten in that race duel—and as we walked from the Niles West stadium to the field house, I had begun to prepare my team for bad news. What I had not noticed was a subpar performance that day by Maine South, who had entered the race, we thought, a better team than ours. It turned out to be good news when the results were posted; we had scored points for fifth place.
Last year we entered the sectional ranked as high as second in the pre-race speculation. But we had had some adversity during the week entering the race; we were not percent.
In the end, we just ran badly that day. But two of our runners up front—Santino and Weber—had underperformed, as well. When the results were posted, there was a surprise. Improbably the results on the wall said we had finished fifth with points. We celebrated wildly, no doubt because of the big surprise. We had been prepared for bad news. We took celebratory photographs with the team gathered around state champion and Ignatius graduate Mike Patton, who had come to watch the race.
Then came the bad news. Because of a chip scoring error, the results were missing a runner from Lane Tech. When the runner was added to the race rank after a video review, we were relegated to sixth place. As I noted in a blog post at the time, boys do cry. We had entered the race nervous but confident in ourselves. We had run well, if not spectacularly. We had a score safely under —maybemaybe ?
