Talented Freshmen Face Championship Season Learning Curve

Girls Individual Impacts

There are a couple of Freshman girls who will have a chance to advance individually to the state meet.

Denton Guyer freshman Brynn Brown is one who got off to a great start early in the season. A the Marcus I Invitational, Brown had her coming out party. At Marcus, she dropped almost 50 seconds from her first meet against many of the best in Texas. Her 18:18 put her name on the mind of many coaches and competitors. Guyer coach, Ponsonby believes he has a special young talent that has a good shot at qualifying for state. Brown's learning curve will be challenged as it is now the do or die point of the season and Brown will have be on her A game as she will face upperclassmen in District 6-6A and Region 1-6A who will be on a mission moving forward. 


McKinney Boyd freshman Kate Leonard is another young individual with a good opportunity to qualify for state individually. Leonard is the young lady who foiled the Keller perfect score at the Prowl In The Park with her 18:33 PR (at the time). A week later, she followed that up with a new 18:19 PR and individual win at the Lubbock Invitational. If Leonard's progression arrow is to continue to point up for the championship season, she will have to adjust to the critical win or go home qualifying standards remaining on the season. Like Brown, Leonard will have to be on her A game in a tough District 6-6A and Region 1-6A "Region of Doom".

Eva Jess has quietly been on fire out west. Well, not really quietly, because we have definitely taken notice as has all of West Texas. Jess has been leading her El Paso Franklin squad all year and she is doing so by winning and winning consistently. Jess can appropriately make DJ Khaled's song "All I Do is Win" her theme song, as she has yet to take an L on the season. Jess is another talented freshman that will line up in the Region 1-6A race.
