Hannah Preisser (Carrboro)
One of the bigger stars from the Jungle Run was Carrboro freshman Hannah Preisser. Preisser contended for the win finishing just 19 seconds behind the winner Maggie McCormick. Preisser currently ranks at NC#4 with her 18:40.65 mark from the Jungle Run. This is a major boost for Carrboro who was already the NCHSAA 2A Team favorite heading into the season. Her teammates from 2-6 posted an 18 second gap. This will also make Preisser the early season favorite for the 2A Individual title. The top individual returner from 2017 was Emma Luther who posted an 18:53 a year ago at regionals.
Carrboro had a major star a few years back in Maysa Araba who ran 18:03 in 2013. Preisser is certainly the schools biggest star since Araba's graduation.
