NORTHFIELD, Minn. -- The start Saturday's boys' Class 2A state cross country race was wide open for the individual championship.   But St Francis senior Adam Zutz was about to cap off an outstanding season. Zutz came from behind to edge Burnsville junior Cole O'Brien and win the 5,000 meter race in 15:33, two seconds ahead of O'Brien.   For Adam, all of his hard work and dedication to the sport paid off on Saturday and he said it felt great.   Adam is being recruited Division I for cross country but he hasn't made a final decision on a school yet.
