ORONO – Orono cross country has been a force in not only Class C North, but in all of Maine.
The Red Riots have had quite the run the past four years. The girls team has won three of the last four Class state titles, while the boys are the defending Class C state champs.
The Red Riots have been running rampant across the north region and have built the beginning of what could be a dynasty.
While its winning prowess is indisputable, Orono remains humble.
“Not sure we’re a dynasty yet I’m not going to make that claim. But, I’ve been really fortunate that for several years I’ve had a group of young athletes that are willing to work really really really hard and support each other and we’ve been very very fortunate because of that,” head coach Lin White said.
