BROOKLYN — Whiteford’s lone runner in Saturday’s Division 3 state cross country meet finished 108th with a time of 17:46.59.
Masters, a sophomore, was just shy of his personal best run of the season.
“I know he ran really well,” Whiteford cross country coach Jay Yockey said. “He got caught up and got stuck in a position he didn’t like, but made up ground after the first mile and a half. He finished strong despite how the race developed for him.
“He also ran a minute faster this year than last. I’m glad he has two more cracks at making a bigger statement at the state meet, because he has more talent to develop and showcase.”
