Brown led the entire first half of the race with her typical lead from the start running strategy. She brought the first mile through around 4:53. Not too long afterwards, Arkansas signeed, Sydney Thorvaldson (WY) eventual winner and the only girl to beat Brown in the last 12 months took the lead and never looked back. Thorvaldson finished in 9:47, good enough for the second fastest time by an American high school runner.
Brown, the 2020 UIL 6A girls cross country state champion will now focus her attention on the high school outdoor season.
