Micah Hewitson of Linganore is the defending Frederick County cross country champion and arguably the preseason favorite for the 3A state cross country title. Hewitson finished 4th in last year's 3A state cross country race and carries over a 16:14 5K personal best from last fall. On the track, Hewitson was a state runner-up twice to Matt Bennett in the 1600 meter run both indoors and outdoors, while lowered his 3200 meter time down to an impressive new PR of 9:29.
