*George C. Marshall rising senior Heather Holt finishes 27th at Foot Locker Nationals in 2016
The Southeast Region should be one to watch this cross country season. At the head of the class is George C. Marshall (Va.) rising senior Heather Holt, who ran a PB of 16:56.00 and finished 27th overall at Foot Locker Nationals in 2016.
But another national contender in the wings is Christian Academy of Knoxville (Tn.) High's Rebecca Story, who was third in the same race and ran a season-best of 17:12.03 last year -- though Story also raced to a time of 16:57.44 in 2015.
Other returners who are expected to make an impact include Walter Johnson (Md.) High's Abigail Green, Padua (DE) Academy's Lydia Olivere, Ravenwood (Tn.) High's Annika Sleenhof and Riverview (Fl.) High's Bailey Hertenstein.
