Mount View High School indoor and outdoor track coach Kevin "Gus" Petrak proved to be the best of the field as the 40-year-old Unity resident motored through the 3.1-mile course and finished first in 17 minutes and two seconds.

Courtney Dotterweich, 19, of Hubbardston, Mass., was the first female finisher in 21 minutes.
