Cox Student Wins State Cross Country Title

For the first time in more than 30 years a South Hampton Roads runner is bringing home the state cross-country title.

Cox High School senior Jonathan Lomogda ran the 5K in 15:34. The second place runner was 22 seconds behind him.

The 6A State Championship was held Friday, Nov. 13 at Great Meadow in the Plains.

Lomogda lost to only two runners the whole season and one of them is ranked fastest in the nation.

The senior is also an honor student who is looking at Yale, Columbia and William & Mary.
