VALLEY CITY — Bismarck senior Matt Gotta entered the North Dakota Class A state boys cross country meet ranked No. 1, but he brought along a good luck charm just to be safe.

Gotta wore the racing gloves of former Bismarck cross country standout and three-time Class A boys individual state champion Jake Leingang on Saturday.

The gloves fit and Gotta cruised to an individual state championship of his own finishing the 5K race in 15 minutes, 50.5 seconds.
