WILMINGTON — Different strategy, same result.
South Brunswick junior Grant Hufham won the Mideastern 4A/3A Conference boys’ championship cross-country race Thursday, Oct. 17, at Hugh MacRae Park.
On a warm afternoon, Hufham ran the shaded, flat 3.1-mile course in 16 minutes, 28.37 seconds.
Hufham entered the race as one of the favorites as the result of his victory Sept. 19 in the season-opening race. (Laney and New Hanover were not in the event.) Leading from nearly start to finish, he won that race by 5 seconds in 16:40.99.
