State of the Action

Little did they know how much he was saving for that last lap.  Parker Stokes didn't want to lead the race through the opening laps, instead opting for the next row of athletes over the steeple barriers.  Once the coast cleared up, he made his way up to the duo leaders from Goshen, and with one lap to go, unleashed a massive burst.  We saw that backfire for a Corning athlete a few years ago here, but Stokes executed it in style.
