Poll: Minnesota Girls Runner of the Week (August 24-26)


The cross country season officially started last week on Thursday when the first Minnesota cross country meets were run. The first week of cross country is usually slower than the rest, but that didn't stop our runner of the week nominees from running some remarkable times, historic results, and huge PRs.

Here we look at the Minnesota Girl's Runner of the Week Nominees for Week 1 of the cross country season. 

Polling starts on Monday at 7 am and ends on Saturday at 7 pm.
