All-Pinellas County boys cross country

Chase Sutton, Sr., Seminole

Why we picked him: No one pushed the pace as hard as Sutton, who sprinted to the lead in every race and left a staggering field of county competitors behind. The St. Petersburg Times' 2009 runner of the year, Sutton continued to dominate by winning titles at the Cougar Invitational, the Pinellas County Athletic Conference meet and district meet. At the 4A state meet, he finished sixth in a personal-best 15:23.

Did you know?: Sutton lowered his time in every race. He started the season running a 16:48 and shaved nearly 11/2 minutes off that time in a two-month span.

What's next: Sutton hopes to get an appointment to one of the military academies. In the spring, he'll concentrate on running the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races in track.

First team

Blake Arnold, Jr., Admiral Farragut: He finished in the top three in nearly every race before the state meet.

Ricy Brown, Sr., Countryside: A middle-distance star in track, Brown became Chase Sutton's biggest rival this season.

Zachary Maciolek, Jr., Dunedin: He was not far behind teammate Shane Deeley and finished consistently in the top five at meets.

Shane Deeley, Sr., Dunedin: He won a district title and helped the Falcons advance to the region and state meets for the first time in years.

Jacob Hudak, Jr., Seminole: He helped the Warhawks win the conference and advance to the region meet.

Cameron Wheeler, Sr., St. Petersburg: He won the St. Petersburg City meet title and stayed among the top 30 at the district and region meets.
