img_5414Hunter Appleton ’19 competed in the Foot Locker South Regional Championships last Saturday, November 26 at McAlpine Park in North Carolina. Hunter’s 5k time of 16:04 .50 earned him 51st place in a field of 283 high school runners from across the southeastern United States. Hunter was the fourth fastest 10th grader competing in the race. The Top 10 runners in the race advance to compete at the Foot Locker National Championships in San Diego, CA., a goal that Hunter has set to achieve for himself within the next two years.

 

Prior to this race, Hunter finished in second overall at the LHSAA 5A Cross Country State Championships, while teammate Hayden Courrege ’18 finished in third overall, which earned both of these Crusaders All-State recognition.
