Breakthrough Stars Countdown #1: Michaela Rose

Our number one preseason breakthrough athlete is also the national runner-up in the 400mH and defending national champion in the 800. She has yet to fully show us her XC speed and for that reason Michaela Rose enters the season as our #1. 

Entering her junior XC season Michaela has run 18:14. She could lower that time substantially but unfortunately we will only get to see her run later into the season because she is not sanctioned to compete in VA.
