Additionally, Hagan Russell placed in the top 10 and ran a personal record of 16:05.37.

He makes the seventh Trojan this year to break the 17-minute barrier.

The Trojan girls placed eighth overall out of 17 teams. The girls finished behind last year's 6A state championship team, North Atlanta. Emily Whipple took a huge step forward placing 11th overall with a time of 19:41.47. This makes Emily the second-fastest female Trojan cross country runner of all time behind Carrollton High School alumnae Emma Bussard.
