cross countryMerritt 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 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.
