Hopkins senior Rachael Weber easily won a regional title.
So did her team.
Weber crossed the finish line at Portage West Middle School in 19:41, putting her 26 seconds ahead of runner-up Sammi Cleary from Delton and 45 seconds ahead of teammate Megan Heft, who was third. And led by Weber, the Vikings finished with 42 points to outdistance second-place Watervliet by 56 points at the Saturday, Oct. 25, race.
The regional championship is the third straight for Hopkins, which advanced to the state finals at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn on Saturday, Nov. 1.
Four of the Vikings’ runners placed in the top 15, giving all of them All-Region honors.
