Cross country coach Jeremy Lehning selected freshman Jacy Johnston as the athlete of the season for cross country.
Lehning said, “I chose her because she has the school record for the fastest 4k time with 17:04, which is one minute faster than the old record. She also finished 25th at state with a 4k time of 17:26, which was highest for any runner.”
