A cross country invitational earlier this season provided Whitehall's, Gabe Lamm, with just enough experience to improve on his time significantly at last weekend's PIAA State Cross Country Championships at Parkview Cross Country Course in Hershey, Pa.

"I ran it earlier in the year, and I was just thinking I have to do a lot better," Lamm said.

Lamm went from a time of 19:10 to 17:45 on one of the most challenging courses in the state. The Zephyr sophomore was Whitehall's only state qualifier after the District XI meet on Oct. 24.

No team was more hopeful and surprised than the Whitehall Zephyrs when the announcement was made that sophomore cross country runner, Gabe Lamm, won the last spot to the PIAA State Cross Country meet after qualifying at the District XI meet on Oct. 24 at Bethlehem Municipal Golf Course.

As the Zephyrs erupted in cheers for Lamm, his teammates surrounded him with hugs and pats on the back.

Prior to the announcement, Lamm knew it could go either way, having finished in 15th place in 17:31.
