HEBRON – Versailles’ Samuel Prakel won his second consecutive state title at the cross country Division III state championships Saturday in Hebron.
“It’s probably one of the hardest things ever to repeat state first place, so it’s definitely going to sink in later, but it hasn’t quite yet,” Prakel said.
To top off his final high school cross country race, Prakel raced his personal best at an astounding 15:16.62 on the 5K track.
