Benning wins second straight section title
Hastings senior Zack Benning is headed back to the state cross country meet.
On Thursday afternoon, Benning blew away the field at the Section 1AA cross country meet at Brooktree Golf Course in Owatonna. He won the 5k race in 15 minutes, 36.2 seconds. The next runner was almost 20 seconds behind.
“What do you say?” coach John Dewall said. “I’ll tell you, watching him race the last three races here … wow.”
Justin Hyytinen of Farmington was second in 15:53.7.
