Trinity Episcopal School senior Molly Breidenbaugh is the defending Virginia Independent Schools Division 1 state champion in cross country as well as a reigning 3200 champion on the track, which she ended up lowering her time down to 10:46 in the spring. After a successful first year and smooth transition to Trinity Episcopal School following spending her first two years at Hanover High School in Mechanicsville, Breidenbaugh has her sights set on even bigger goals this year including hopefully a trip to San Diego in December for the Foot Locker Nationals if she can be one of the top 10 finisher at the South Regional qualifier in Charlotte on Thanksgiving weekend.
