Coach.

Gail Peterson created a cross country dynasty in the little town of Crofton where his teams won 15 state championships and claimed the runner-up trophy another eight times. His girls teams won nine state titles, including eight straight from 1981-88. The boys teams won six state titles between 1977 and 1991. He coached two two-time state cross country champions: Karla Kube (1983/1985) and Delwyn Hennings (1976-77). His boys teams qualified for the state meet 36 of the 38 years he coached at Crofton. He also coached two years at Cortland. He fulfilled other coaching duties along the way as well.
