Nicole enters her senior season ranked 4th amongst her 6A peers but unlike them did not get a chance to race at XC states. Due to finishing 12th in her region she was unable to advance out of the toughest region in the state.
That placing was unfortunate because she could have really done well and likely finished with an All-State honor. She did however finished 20th two years ago. This year, expect her to be in that front pack the final half of the race.
Speaking of halves, she also took home the half-mile state title (800) this outdoor track season. That performance and the sheer grit she showed gave us some great insight to what this upcoming XC season will be like.
Expect her to be tough, train hard, and have a huge breakthrough this XC season.
