Hilton Head Island High School cross country coach Bill Wrightson poses on Wednesday with a banner listing boys and girls cross country championships. All of the championships, other than that of 1986, were won by teams he coached. Missing from the sign are boys state titles in 2014, 2015 and, of course, 2017. They also won it in 2009, and were second in 2008 and 2012.
