Merritt High School had never had any individual win a State Championship until this year. Sophomore Riley Herndon became the 2A State Champ after running the 5k course in 17:10.
Riley stopped by the Skinny on Sports https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/skinnyonsports/episodes/2020-11-10T11_08_49-08_00 to tell us about winning a State Title, including how he trained leading up to the State Meet….. (4:58) Riley also told us about having to sacrifice to be able to put his best foot forward at State (6:18)
Congratulations to Riley Herndon on his 2A Cross Country State Championship.
