"Hebron is certainly fantastic. They were the number one seed coming in. Howard's got some phenomenal guys too. They've put up some great individual efforts this year, so we knew they would be great," said Oakland Mills coach Phil Lang, whose team of Kelsey White, Sean Smith, Jared Nguyen and Joey Navarro beat out the Vikings and Lions with a time of 8 minutes and 5.86 seconds Monday. "We thought we would be in the hunt somewhere in there with these bigger schools. They're totally awesome as well, but I didn't think any of the three of us would run 3:05 today and all three of us ran sub 8:10 I believe, so that is just a heck of an effort for the Howard County schools as whole I think and I am certainly proud of my guys. That was special, really good."
