    Methner breaks course record in Palatine Invitational win
    Fitzpatrick just misses course record in her win; Hersey, Lyons Township win team titles By Michael Newman [email protected] Palatine, Illinois – It did not take long for Hersey’s Josh Methner to make his move at Saturday’s Palatine Invitational Boys Varsity race.

After my senior year, we were driving back from Peoria and he had me looking through the results asking about which runners would be coming back for the 1980 season. An hour after the season was over, he was already looking ahead. Process of a Preview is an extension of that looking at the detail I use
