Kennedy Powell, a sophomore at Union, took the 3A Girls Cross Country Individual State Championship yesterday. She took third last year as a freshman.
Kennedy fended off the second place finisher and won by one second! Kennedy’s time was 18:58.4, with the second place finisher coming in at 18:59.4.
After the race, Kennedy was quoted in the Desert News: “It was a bit harder than I was expecting,” Powell said. “I went out a little too quick. I kind of died out toward the end, and they almost caught me. Luckily, I held out just long enough.”
