She is a four-time all-area and all-league performer.

Isabel Sibley, Fr., Anderson County

Sibley came on strong at the end of the season. She learned the ropes of high school cross-country rather quickly.

She helped the Bulldogs to a perfect score in winning the league championship. She finished fifth in the  league race to earn all-league honors. She was 19th at the 4A regional.

Paige Scheckle, Fr., Anderson County

Scheckle was part of a quartet of freshmen runners that will give Anderson County depth in the coming seasons. Scheckle improved throughout her freshman campaign.
