The Pettisville boys cross country team is the Buckeye Border Conference champion for the second straight year after winning all three BBC Jamborees this season.

Fayette finished as runners up, and Stryker was third.

Dominic Frey, Tanner Rufenacht, and Jeremy Mann were named First Team All- BBC.

The Birds scored 29 points to win the third Jamboree, Thursday, Oct. 11.

Fayette was the BBC girls champion, winning two of the three Jamborees. Hilltop was second, followed by Stryker in third place and Pettisville in fourth.

Samantha Shinhearl was named First Team All-BBC.

Hilltop won the third Jamboree with 48 points, one point less than Fayette. Pettisville was fifth.

“I’m very proud of all of the kids and their efforts,” said Tom Wagner, PHS head coach.

“The boys have really bonded as a team in both practices and competition. That’s something that you really can’t coach.

“We’ve had tremendous leadership from Tanner Rufenacht, and support from our juniors as well. All their hard work and dedication is showing.”
