KVAC cross country: Barber, Cougars take conference titles... "I had no idea how the race was going to go," said Barber, a senior. "By the second time on the hill, I was just like 'Alright, this just feels right. I'll just go for it.' I did, and I spent the rest of the race hoping I could hold on."Barber more than held on. He opened up a dozen seconds between him and a trailing pack that included Edward Little's Jacob Gamache on Saturday to become the third Mt. Blue runner in four years to win the conference title.http://www.sunjournal.com/news/local-sp ... es/2012650
