Lebanon Federal Credit Union Presents Athlete of the Week, Ending Oct. 29

Landon Hostetter is one busy guy. He’s got things to do, people to meet, places to see.

When he’s not playing his instrument or booting a soccer ball, he’s running down championships.

On Saturday at Big Spring High School, the multi-talented Hostetter captured the boys’ individual title at the District Three Class A Cross Country Championships. The Annville-Cleona sophomore covered the 3.1 mile course in Newville in a blistering 16:38 to nudge runner-up Henry Friedrichs of Veritas Academy by nine seconds.

Hostetter’s efforts helped the Little Dutchmen to a third-place showing in the Class A team standings. Hostetter, who averaged 5:21 per mile, is also a member of the Annville-Cleona boys’ soccer team and Little Dutchmen marching band during the fall season.

Ten days earlier, at the Lancaster-Lebanon League Meet, Hostetter had finished 25th among male competitors. On that day, Hostetter covered the Ephrata Middle School course in 17:28.9.

Through his showing at the District Three meet, Hostetter qualified for the PIAA Class A Cross Country Championships at Hershey on November 5.
