Cullen McCaleb is the TAPPS AAA State Cross Country Champion. With high hopes coming into the 2020 season, Cullen expressed his passion, grit, and determination to finish in the top five earlier this year. Last season, Cullen finished 7th. At Monday's State Championship meet, he finished 1st out of the 99 runners. He ran a 16:34 and set a personal record at each race this season.
Avery Owen is your TAPPS AAA State Cross Country Runner-Up. Last season, Avery finished in the top 20 and set her goal to finish in the top 3 at the State Meet in the 2020 season. She ran a 12:40 on Monday and finished 2nd place with 66 runners in her division. Avery is a dual-sport athlete this fall. After competing at the State Cross Country meet Monday morning, she made it back to Lakehill's campus in time for volleyball practice that evening. She is competing tonight in the bi-district volleyball playoff game.
Congratulations to Cullen and Avery!
