Leading the way academically were seniors Anna Bos and Allison Hazy along with junior Taylor Manett, each of whom received individual All State honors. Individual honors are received by finishing the race in the top half of the 220 racers and then having one of the top 30 GPAs out of those athletes. Academically, Bos finished 17th, Manett 22nd and Hazy 28th. These girls are each ranked within
