Csorba competes in VHSL State 2-A cross country meet / November 15, 2017

Some days everything goes your way and on others, it just doesn’t. So went Bluestone’s Frank Csorba’s run at a VHSL State 2-A title on Saturday in The Plains.

Csorba placed 99th in a field of 103 runners with a time of 20:52.0. The 3.1 mile time — down from his 18:10.0 finish at the region meet — was definitely not one of Csorba’s best.

The winning time of 15:40.0 was run by James River High School junior William Miller. First place and tenth place were separated by one minute.

Maggie Walker, which dominated and won the Region 2-A East meet last week, placed two runners in the top-10 and also went on to win the state meet as a team with a combined score of 61.

Wilson Memorial (80), Central Woodstock (85), James River Buchannan (100) and Poquoson (153) rounded out the top-five teams in that order.

Csorba had a great season for Bluestone, leading the boys cross-country team in nearly every regular season meet. Csorba went on to win fourth place at the district tourney and placed 10th at the regions, against some very stiff competition.

Csorba also competed in an invitation only cross-country meet held in Australia over the summer and held his own, placing in the top half of runners.
