The team was led by individual state champion, Lainey Studebaker (1st, 17:39), Kelli Walsh (23rd, 18:43), Taylor Malchow (26th, 18:49), Savannah Lowe (29th, 18:52), Rachel Whitehead (31st, 18:53), Allison Fick (44th, 19:09), and Grace Kilroy (96th, 20:11). Lainey’s time of 17:39 set a new course record at National Trail Raceway and gave her a 2nd Cross Country Individual State Champion Title!

Together, this team of runners, with focus and determination, captured a back-to-back State Championship, and once again the podium was filled with the entire team smiling and embracing as ONE. This 2015 CGXC team truly ROLLED ON this season!
