The York Suburban boys’ cross country teams from 1997 through 2000 set the school standard — four District 3 Class 2-A championships in a row.

Saturday at Big Spring High School, this year’s group of Trojans will seek to tie the school record by winning their fourth consecutive district title.

“It’s  a goal, and it’s definitely achievable,” said Peter Wagner, the only senior among the seven Suburban runners who earned places in in last week’s York-Adams All-League Run. “I’m so honored to be part of this program for three in a row, and, I would love to get four in a row.”

GETTYSBURG — For Maddie McLain and Patrick Jacobson, it was their time to be in the spotlight.

McLain, the Eastern York High School standout who finished second to a senior, Maddie Ferner of Kennard-Dale, in last year’s York-Adams Girls’ All-League Cross Country Run, crossed the finish line first this year.

Jacobson, meanwhile, one of the favorites in the boys’ competition, delivered on his potential and won the race in his final opportunity. The Dallastown High School senior put up a time of 17 minutes, 1 second, five seconds ahead of Bermudian Springs junior Chad Long.

Eastern York High School cross county standout Maddie McLain received a text from a former rival on Monday.

“Maddie Ferner (a Kennard-Dale graduate and last year’s York-Adams All-League Run winner), texted me and said, ‘so, you have (the All-League Run on Tuesday), are you ready?’ I was like, basically, ‘yes.’ She then said, ‘who’s your competition?’ I said, ‘well, there’s this freshman from Dallastown (Emily Schuler), and she’s exceptionally good.'”

Exceptional. That’s the perfect word to describe McLain’s season, too. She broke six course records and is coming off a second-place finish in last year’s All-League Run. She has to be considered the favorite for this year’s event at Gettysburg High School.

SPRING GROVE — It doesn’t take much to motivate the York Suburban boys’ cross country team.

The Trojans’ runners are both a smart and competitive group that is almost always well aware of where it stands in relation to its goals.

That doesn’t mean, however, that head coach Ron Herman doesn’t give his team some reminders.

Such was the case Tuesday afternoon when the Trojans entered their final team meet of the regular season at Spring Grove High School with one more item to check off their list. With York-Adams League Division II rival Gettysburg tied with Suburban atop the division standings heading into the meet, the Trojans were determined to get the better of the Warriors in order to secure another division title.

Coming into Tuesday’s girls’ cross country showdown vs. Eastern York, the York Suburban Trojans had an important question to answer.

According to coach Dan VanHouwe, that inquiry was: “What do we have?”

The Trojans quickly found out, when top runner Courtney Ohl was forced off the course because of illness.

Suburban responded with a team effort that utilized its depth, resulting in a crucial victory, a 27-32 decision over Eastern York at a meet at Northeastern High School.
