September 16, 2000|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Make it 2-for-2 for Archbishop Spalding's Dusty Lieb and the C. Milton Wright girls cross country team.

Lieb, a senior who captured the gold medal at the Spiked Shoe Invitational at Johns Hopkins last Saturday, won the individual boys crown with a meet-record 15:28 at the Knights Invitational at Baybrook Park yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Mustangs followed up their team victory at Spiked Shoe by placing five runners in the top 23 and capturing the girls division.

With Kacie Remeto (second place), Cara Wettlaufer (eighth), Jessica Hepner (13th), Jessica Adams (19th), and Heather McHugh (23rd), C. Milton Wright easily outpaced runner-up Notre Dame Prep, 65-102.

Towson's Cori Koch, a junior who transferred from St. Paul's, grabbed the individual girls title with a personal-record 18:28.

The Towson boys squad edged Magruder, 83-94, for the division championship.

Howard Invitational

The South Carroll boys and the River Hill girls teams won Howard County Invitational championships at Centennial.

South Carroll beat out River Hill, 59-86, while the River Hill girls coasted over runner-up Mt. Hebron, 33-109.

South Carroll's Bobby Mead (16:58.03) and River Hill's Lee McDuff (20:38.46) won the individual titles.

Unlike the girls race that McDuff dominated, the boys individual race was close. Glenelg's Jon Goldsmith led by 10 yards for most of the race. Mead pulled up to Goldsmith's shoulder with a half-mile to go and then built a slight lead before finishing with a strong kick and edging Goldsmith (17:00.99) by just under three seconds.

River Hill's girls took four of the top six places, with freshman Anne Cunningham finishing a surprising fourth.
