Scouting leads Oxford Hills' Sclafani to the front

..."I'm a math guy, so I look at pacings a lot," Dominic Sclafani said. "I'm not really a biology guy, but I do look up how going out fast will affect lactic acid buildup during a race, so I do typically try to start slower so it doesn't happen too quickly."

The Oxford Hills senior is the top runner in the KVAC — based on times — and one of the top runners in Class A, and he attributes a lot of his success to delving into the times and tendencies of his competitors.

"Over the years, I started to look for racers that run similar to how I do," Sclafani said. "I would just look for them at the start of races and then after the first mile I just do my own thing after that."
