Camille Long - 18:41 5K XC in 2013
2015 End of Season Ranking - 25th

2016 Returning Ranking based off 2015 - 24th
Ashlyn Blakely will be the star for T.C.Roberson in the upcoming years. She is coming off a strong freshman season where she qualified individually for the 4A State XC Meet and finished 6th at the Regional and 24th at the state meet. She was the top girl for the program her freshman year and will look to do the same this season. Camille Long is the #2 returner, but looks to have had her 2015 season cut short due to injury since she didn't race at the end of the season. Long is going into her senior year and holds a tremendous PR from her freshmen season of 18:41. If she could get back towards this type of form it would be huge for the Rams this season.
One of the toughest parts of the season will be the 4A West regional battle where they will have to square off against strong distance programs like Myers Park, Ardrey Kell, Hough, and Providence where only 4 can advance to the state meet. They come into the season ranked 5th in the region but a lot can change in that time and might be just one runner away from being a top team in this region. Their depth past the 4th runner is a weak point for the Rams and they'll need to develop some depth in the early season.
