Hamlin Takes Sixth Place at 2018 State Cross Country Championship

The race itself was predictable. Cathedral’s Cole Hocker, the favorite going into the meet, was clearly going to take the race from the beginning with maybe one or two runners following him and the rest would form a chase pack. What wasn’t predictable was what Hamlin would end up doing in the heat of the race. Would he get gutsy and chase after Hocker? Or would he play it safe as planned and stick with the chase pack?
