With each season, Wilde Lake's cross country program builds a stronger reputation.Wilde Lake has won back-to-back county and regional championships, and finished second in the state Class 2A competition the past two seasons.Even though the Wildecats graduated four of their top five boys, that didn't stop the Columbia school from winning yesterday's Howard County Striders Invitational at Howard Community College.In the process, the youthful Wildecats left little doubt that again they are the team to beat for the Howard County title.

The Wilde Lake boys and Centennial girls tuned up for next week's Howard County championships by winning a competitive quad meet that included Oakland Mills and Atholton yesterday at Howard Community College.Two Centennial runners, Jeff Olenick and Neha Amin, won the individual boys and girls races.This was an eagerly-awaited, first head-to-head confrontation with Atholton for the two-time defending county champion Wildecats, and the narrow 38-42 margin of victory was probably a little closer than coach Charlie Shoemaker would have liked.

High drama permeated the county cross country championships yesterday at Howard Community College, where no one would have thought less of River Hill's Beth Santilli if she had opted not to run.Last Saturday, after finishing sixth at the Georgetown Prep Invitational, she suffered an enlarged windpipe, hyperventilated and was taken by ambulance to a hospital where she was revived from a semiconscious state with oxygen.Santilli not only chose to run yesterday. She won. And the junior did it in impressive fashion, 15 seconds ahead of runner-up Kristin Sunderdick of Oakland Mills.

Centennial distance runner Jeff Olenick said he usually hates the wind. On a normal day, a few well-placed gusts can throw him off of his race.Yesterday at blustery Westminster High, however, Olenick simply put Mother Nature out of his mind.After racing to a state championship in the 3,200 meters in a personal-best time of 9 minutes, 36.14 seconds, the senior said that on this day, even a hurricane wouldn't have made much of a difference."Normally, it really bothers me, but I didn't really start thinking about it until two laps left in the race, and by then I already had my momentum going," said Olenick.

The fortunes of Wilde Lake's cross country teams completed a remarkable ascent yesterday at the state championship meet in Hereford.The Wildecat harriers, who had never won a state team title, won two of them, capturing both the boys and girls crowns in Class 2A.In doing so, coach Charles Shoemaker's squads accounted for two-thirds of Howard County's state titles in the meet. Centennial's Jeff Olenick won the individual championship in the boys 3A race.Not since Earl Lauer's teams at Atholton did so in 1989, has a Howard County school won both the boys and girls championships in the same year.
