The Keller girls have been on a mission all season long. Their steps have been under the lights, on center stage, and when they ran they have been in the spotlight. They repeated as UIL 6A state champions and their seniors have all signed to go onto college. With all of their accomplishments and accolades, this weekend is what they have been running for since this time last year.
There has been talk about Keller being the best girls cross country team to ever come out of Texas. That talk is all subjective, but one thing is for sure, if they are to get on the awards stand the talk will be justified. If they win NXN, the claims will be justified as everything comes down to this race for Keller.
At the NXR South race, they had a "non Keller-like" type of race day. However, they were still able to qualify for NXN. Being one of the top programs nation wide all season, Keller took their first loss of the season at the South regional. That may have been just what the doctor ordered as they are still going to NXN, but not so entitled. After having reality that an awards stand spot will not be given to them, but they'll have to take it if it is to be, Keller could be wide awake and ready to do some damage.
