Junior Co-Captain Anna Manson has had her hard work from the past year, especially this summer, pay off in the early parts of the 2017 cross country season. In both of the first two meets Anna has run the fastest time on the SAV team. In the team’s first meet, the Holy Angels Invite, Anna led the JV team to a first place finish while she finished in first place overall in the race. Anna was only running the JV meet since she had to miss the team time trial. In the second meet, the Tri-Metro Jamboree, Anna paced the team to a second place finish while she took 9th overall. Ever since Anna first joined cross country in 9th grade she has shown an admirable dedication to the sport. Manson is looking to continue her success as the team travels to Fridley on Thursday to compete in the annual ‘Peach Run.’
In addition to running, Anna enjoys road biking, skiing, and music. Last spring Manson visited Germany with the SAVHS band.
Congratulation to Anna on a great start to the 2017 cross country season!
