Fairview runners succeed on home course

Fairview cross country runners Dan Wilcko and Nick Samsel competed on familiar turf Saturday.

Officially, Wilcko and Samsel didn’t represent the Tigers in the Shannon Teeter Memorial Night Light 5K. However, they still brought pride to their program by placing first and second in a field of more than 100 entrants at the Pleasant Ridge Park event.

Wilcko, a junior at Fairview, crossed the finish line first in 17 minutes, 39 seconds. Samsel, a senior, was the silver medalist at 17:47.

The duo returns to Pleasant Ridge on Tuesday, when Fairview hosts Mercyhurst Prep and Girard in a Region 5 tri-meet.
