2A boys' cross-country: Richfield romps to team title
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

There was no way Rowland Hall junior Ryan Westermann was making the same mistake twice. He let up near the finish line and lost a state title by less than a second in 2011.

This year, he passed Richfield's Caleb Monson about a mile from the finish, didn't turn around once and drove home for a convincing win.

"I put that photo of the finish [in 2011] up on my wall, and it was just motivation every day before practice, and I kept telling myself, 'Not this year,' " Westermann said.
