RIO RANCHO – One Albuquerque Academy high school state cross country streak came to an end Saturday, while another stretched into its third season.
Individually, new blood climbed atop the top step of the virtual podium on the girls side, while the top boys big school runners held serve.
CLASS 5A BOYS: As Cleveland’s Yonas Haile sped down the sideline at Rio Rancho Stadium leading to the finish, the person he was chasing had finished quite some time earlier.
Haile, who repeated as 5A champion in a time of 15-minutes, 49.55 seconds, was trying to keep up with Kirtland Central’s Kashon Harrison, who already had won in 4A.
