GRAY — Maci Shell’s amazing freshman campaign got even more impressive on Thursday.
Shell blazed to a third-place finish in the Region 1-A/AA cross country championships at Daniel Boone. She clocked a time of 21:30.07 over the 3.1 mile course in qualifying for next week’s state meet in Nashville.
“I like my place,” Shell said. “I wish my time had been a little bit better, but I’m pretty happy with all of it.”
Greeneville’s duo of freshman Addie Leonard (20:32.30) and senior Hannah Rhodes (21:03.7) finished 1-2 in the girls’ event.
