East CC and Track standout, senior Dustin Horter, was selected   to run for Team USA at the 2018 simply Health Great Edinburgh XCountry  Challenge.  The race was held at the historic Holyrood Park in  Edinburgh, Scotland.  Team USA competed against teams from Europe and   Great Britain.  The race was a 6K that consisted of 4 laps around a 1.5k  course.  Dustin said the course was very challenging given the terrain.  There were several creek crossings and a footbridge crossing  with water over the top of it. The course itself was sloppy with a mix  of rocks and grass.  Most of the runners for Team USA pitched their spikes afterward as many of the spikes were bent navigating the rocky course.  It  was a typical damp and grey Scottish day around 40 degrees. Dustin  finished 13th overall in the combined JR division.  His final time was 20:11 for the 6K.  This was the first time he has  gone the 6K distance.

Overall, Dustin said the experience was awesome.  He had  a chance to compete with 4 of the other Midwest guys that he has become good  friends with, Dylan Jacobs, Danny Kilrea, Clayton Mendez and Drew   Bosley.  They all flew together from Chicago O’hare into Heathrow in  London and then to Edinburgh.  Getting to socialize with the  Professional team was also a good experience as it gave him a chance to talk  to runners like Leonard Korir who won the Senior men’s race and Garrett Heath  who has won this race 3 times.  Dustin said Garrett Heath was approachable  and gave him a lot of information about competing at the professional level.  One of the highlights was trading gear with the other athletes.  Dustin traded a Team USA shirt for one of the Great Britain shirts.  The athletes also got a kick out of giving things way to the little kids who were  there watching.  Dustin said they especially wanted the Team USA stuff  and continually hung around their tent. Dustin gave them a pair of gloves and  one of his hats.

Mike Dyer of WCPO.COM fame brings another outstanding GMC athletic effort to forefront as he delves into the outstanding play Oak Hills Highlander roundballer, Nick Deifel.  Nick Deifel stepped up big with the game on the line and provided the "spark" that made the difference in a "westside showdown" where the Highlanders took the full measure of the Elder Panthers in a classic, packed house  environment.  Congratualtions to Nick Deifel and his Highlander teammmates on a job very well done!
