* Broughton (NC) High School's Dylan Core has the top overall 5K time this XC season
- - -
It's not always easy being a freshman in cross country.
As juniors and seniors zoom to ridiculously fast times, freshmen often focus on the build-up phases of this sport and prosper later in their careers.
But even then, we can often see glimpses of potential.
So in that respect, we've compiled the best freshman performers in the Class of 2023 through the young cross country season.
One athlete has stood out among others: Broughton (NC) High School's Dylan Core.
The first-year high school runner has been a vital part of his team's success, picking up two top 10 finishes between meets in August and October, and will have a chance to run with his team come the postseason.
Core owns a personal best 5K time of 15:17.19, and Broughton has stood out as one of the top teams in the Southeast Region.
Check out Core's time and more.
