Ordinarily when a runner as elite as either Megan or Bethany Hasz comes around, they can be expected to win State Championships without serious competition. But neither runner got that opportunity, as the twin sisters from Alexandria High School seemed to never leave each other's sides. Combining for six individual State Championships (five for Bethany and one for Megan) and finishing as the top two competitors at the State XC Championships three years in a row, it is hardly possibly to think of one without also thinking about the other. The Hasz name owns eight of the twelve fastest 4K times in the following lists, and both of the fastest 5K times on the girls side. Upon graduation, the sisters elected to continue running side-by-side by both competing for the University of Minnesota, where they are currently two of the top runners on a nationally-ranked squad.
