Maggie Drazba of St. Mary's competing in the junior women division 6K race finished 2nd at the USA Cross Country Championships at Forest Park Central Fields in St.Louis on Saturday February 11, 2012. Her 6K time was 21:07.7. This is a little under 5:40 per mile pace or 17:36 5K. However, this would better her previous personal best of 17:40 in the 5K and she ran another 1000 meters.
Cayla Hatton will never win a Massachusetts State Championship. Not because she lacks talent, to the contrary, an argument can be made that she is one of the most gifted distance runner in the state. The reason she will never get the opportunity to compete for a state title is because her school, Phillips Academy in Andover, competes as an independent and is not a member of the MIAA. The technicality has helped her remain a mystery to casual track fans in New England, but it has not deterred her from making a national impact.
Intimidating. That's how Circle Christian junior Bryce Seymour described the start line at the 2012 USA Cross Country Championships. Seymour and Danielle Kissel of Plant made the trek to St. Louis, Missouri to compete against some top college competition, Foot Locker Finalists, and peers. Seymour and Kissel were entered in the Junior Women along with 37 others and finished 22nd and 29th, respectively.
