MALE RUNNER OF THE YEAR* Geoff Warren, Arundel, senior -- Warren won eight of 12 races this fall and didn't lose to a county runner until the state meet where -- weakened from the flu -- he finished 14th, 55 seconds behind Old Mill's Class 4A state champion Jason Reckner. "He was sick and had a week where he couldn't practice because his temperature was around 104 degrees," said Arundel coach Ralph Luce. "His performance at states was not at all indicative of what he can do. He got to the 2-mile mark and he couldn't feel his legs.

There will be those who think Eric Schuler's victory over Robby Creese in Tuesday's Howard County boys cross country championship race was an upset. But don't put Schuler in that group. The Reservoir senior made his move past the midway mark on the Centennial course and pulled away. Schuler went on to score a surprisingly easy victory over River Hill's ScottĀ  Heydrick and Creese, who hadn't lost in-county since last fall. Creese won the county, regional and state titles last fall and every race this year until taking 10 t h at the recent Georgetown Prep meet.

A rule is a rule, and it must be enforced. That's the word from state and national high school officials regarding the disqualification of a Hereford runner for a uniform violation at Monday's Baltimore County cross country championships. The infraction, which related to the color of the stitching of the runner's undershorts, cost Hereford the boys team title. It also raised questions about the relevance of high school athletic regulations that appear to have no obvious effect on the competition itself.
