Palatine’s Richard Jacobo ran one of his best races yet, ranking 23rd overall out of the top 210 runners from the IHSA Boys 3A State Cross Country Final this past Saturday. A 14:49.3 three mile race led to Richie’s best time at Detweiller Park in Peoria, the course is regarded as one of the fastest and most competitive in the nation.

“[Richie] learned his lesson from last year,” Head Coach Chris Quick said, referring to Jacobo’s racing improvement and skill increase in the past year.

In the 2017 state final race, Jacobo led the first half mile of the race, eventually fading back towards the middle section. His entire 2018 season was dedicated and geared toward his determination to make his mark in the running world.

We win as a team, and we lose as a team.”

— Joe Ahlgrim

The all-state runner was the single individual qualifier from Palatine High School this season. The boys team has already set their goals and new objectives in order to qualify as a team in the 2019 season.

“We’re committed to working our way out of this,” Quick said. “We need to work on our trust [and togetherness] as a team.”

As the team transitions into the off-season for the winter, they set their sights on more improvement and work for the following years to come.

“We’re a team,” Senior Joe Ahlgrim said. “We win as a team, and we lose as a team.”
