Kenston’s boys cross country team has dominated the Western Reserve Conference since the Bombers joined the league in 2015. Kenston’s fifth straight team title at the WRC meet Oct. 12 surprised few. But the Bombers executed it in superlative fashion.

Kenston recorded a perfect score.

Senior David Rosinski won the race with a new personal-best time of 16 minutes, 9 seconds. Junior Dennis Princic followed in second place in 16 minutes, 13 seconds, junior Jack Turk (16:20) placed third, junior Tyler McMahan (16:34) was fourth and junior Garrett McConnell (16:38) finished fifth.

The Bombers scored 15 points, the best possible team score — and they expected to accomplish the feat.

“We had a few guys we were worried about but we were ready for this,” Rosinski said. “We knew we were winning but we wanted to do more than that today.”

Even Kenston’s sixth and seventh runners, Maxwell Reardon and Nathan Bertman, finished in the top 10 overall. Reardon was ninth in 16 minutes, 57 seconds and Bertman palced 10th in 16 minutes, 58 seconds.

The Bombers eye a fourth consecutive trip to the state meet, and began their postseason in the best possible fashion.

“These last couple weeks, it’s been a goal of ours,” Princic said. “We just had to do our business today.”
