*****I remember back in the mid-80’s when I defeated Mike Wirth from Northeast Guilford in the Mid-South 5K here in Greensboro. It was really like I finished the race quicker than Mike and since he was the Runner of the Year back then in the Triad 3-A Conference, I then declared myself the Conference Champ, since I had topped Mike in that Road Race.

Long story short, Northeast has had a strong program for many years and Mike Wirth was one of many fine runners….*****
