Alec Font runs to the finish line during the Howard County Championship at Centennial HIgh School in 2012. (Jen Rynda / October 23, 2012)
Though Centennial cross country runner Alec Font finished 16th in the Howard County Championships, don't expect the rest of the pack to count this 2012 first-team all-county selection out when it comes to Thursday's Regional Championship meet.
The senior has recorded impressive finishes at the Spiked Shoe Invite (third), Barnhart Memorial Invite (sixth) and Doc Jones Invite (sixth) this season against other 3A competition, making the case that Centennial's top runner has potential to put on another show at the regionals.
Earlier this season, Font set aside a few moments o talk about some of his interests off the course.
