We preview the 2017 Texas 6A Cross Country Season for both boys and girls. We breakdown every district and predict who we think will make it to state and much more.
MEGAN ROURKE – Lake Travis High
College Choice: University of Texas
400m – 55.75
800m – 2:08.48
1600m – 5:24.07
5K (xc) – 20:43.00
Megan is a state qualifier in both the 400m and 800m, She set the Region record by .1 for Class 6A Region 4 at Alamo Stadium in San Antonio running a 2:10.78. She placed 2nd at the state meet in a new PR of 2:08.48 after going the 200m in that race in a blistering 27. Her time would have placed her first in the Big 12 Championship this year. Which is significant because she will a Longhorn in the fall. I expect great things for Megan at the collegiate level.
