Oklahoma high school cross country: Audrey Hill emerging as a star for Edmond Santa Fe
Audrey Hill had a breakthrough last week.
The Edmond Santa Fe sophomore won the Class 6A-5A race at the Carl Albert Titan Invitational, the first victory of her high school cross country career.
Hill showed Friday she can hang with the state’s top runners during the biggest meet of the regular season, completing the 5-kilometer race in 19 minutes, 48.42 seconds. She also helped Edmond Santa Fe place first in the 28-team field.
Hill has significantly improved from her freshman season, which ended with a 76th-place finish at the Class 6A state meet. She completed the race in 21:41.09.
“We’ve just been watching her grow exponentially,” Edmond Santa Fe girls cross country coach Stephanie Lewis said.
Edmond Santa Fe’s next meet is the OK Runner Classic, which will be held in Norman on Sept. 19.
