All those first-place medals Rachel Buser has won in recent years have proven to be worth almost their weight in gold. The Berkeley Springs senior is set to sign a letter of intent today to continue her running career at Eastern Kentucky University as an NCAA Division I full-scholarship athlete. "I've always wanted to run D-I," said Buser, a 12-time West Virginia state champion in track and cross country. "I didn't know if I'd get a full ride or not, but it happened. " She said it made all the difference in choosing Eastern Kentucky over such schools as Louisville, Ohio and West Virginia.

HAGERSTOWN -- Corey Centofonti has made his run at local greatness. He has been a two-time Region XX cross country champion for Hagerstown Community College, after being a two-time Washington County cross country champ for Smithsburg High School. While the HCC sophomore is heading to the University of Maryland in the fall, he said there's not a roster spot left for him on the Terps cross country team. He's not sure about the track team. That's why Centofonti's future is now. He's set to compete this evening in the 10,000-meter run at the NJCAA Division I Track & Field Championships in Hutchinson, Kan. It's his final meet as a Hawk -- perhaps even the final one of his college career.

andrewm@herald-mail.com Brad Dodson isn't the typical cross country runner. The Martinsburg senior says he doesn't really care for distance running, he never goes to practice, and he even skips races from time to time. But the Bulldogs are probably more than happy that Dodson, a first-year harrier, is just willing to fit cross country into his schedule at all. Not only is Dodson Martinsburg's top runner, he's also a co-captain and standout midfielder on the Bulldogs' No. 3 boys soccer team.

andrewm@herald-mail.com There's something especially enchanting about autumn. Weekend football, jeans and sweatshirts, colorful foliage ... and 8-mile runs are much easier than the summer's 6-milers. It's also the only time of the year when distance running has its very own sports season. Oh, the marvel, right? Unfortunately, cross country seems to be lacking some luster at places. West Virginia University no longer has a men's team and - what's maybe the most disappointing thing I've discovered about the local prep sports scene since I started this job a little more than a year ago - neither do several area high schools.

McConnellsburg's Chris Snyder emerged as one of the Tri-State's top distance runners on the track as a junior last spring, posting times of 1:59 for 800 meters, 4:28 for 1,600 and 9:58 for 3,200. "I came out of my shell last spring," Snyder said. He's now setting the pace for the McConnellsburg cross country team. Wait ... McConnellsburg cross country? Yeah, the Spartans have a team - though it's a squad of only three boys - for the first time in ages. They're coached by Robert Snyder, Chris' father, a 1974 McConnellsburg graduate who was a star runner at Penn State.
