HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. -- Winning isn't everything.

The Mideast Section includes Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. "I got a letter in the mail saying congratulations," said Belotte, who just completed his 13th year as Hedgesville's coach.

"There is no I in team," coaches and athletes like to say. But that old clich hardly applies to the South Hagerstown girls cross country team. Without freshman Tricia Korrell, the Rebels wouldn't even exist this season. She's their only runner. "I'm an only child, so I'm used to being alone," Korrell said after placing 10th in a tri-meet at South on Tuesday. Her father, Don Korrell, helped Middletown win a Maryland state cross country title in the 1970s. "He's the one who encouraged me to come out and do this," Korrell said.

Brian Ferrari knows what it takes to be a successful runner. He won three NCAA Division II titles while attending California University of Pennsylvania in the early 1980s - two in the 10,000-meter run and the other in cross country. He also qualified for and competed in the 1992 U.S. Olympic marathon trials. Hagerstown Community College can only hope that some of that success carries over to its cross country and track and field programs, which Ferrari recently took over as head coach.

Until about a month ago, Dustin Carr, a member of the cross country team at South Hagerstown High School, had never run farther than perhaps a few hundred yards. But at Monday night's cross country meet between South and Smithsburg High School, Dustin, a junior who has cerebral palsy, did the incredible. Dustin, who uses a cane to keep his balance, ran/walked the entire 3-mile course. He did it with a cadre of fans, some of whom accompanied him. About 60 others, including the Smithsburg and South teams and South's cheerleaders, waited the 1 hour, 59 minutes and 49 seconds it took Dustin to cross the finish line.
