    On a cloudy and cool autumn day on November 12, 1977, two of the Illinois all-time greats Tom Graves of Sandburg HS and Jim Spivey of Fenton HS went to the line not only to win a state championship but also to try to break Craig Virgin’s then five-year old course record of 13:50.6. Now in 2017, history could repeat itself as another Sandburg runner Dylan Jacobs and Danny Kilrea of Lyons Township attempt to go lower than the fabled mark. The similarities of the two seasons are hauntingly close.
