NCRunners XC Countdown Girls #7: Hoggard's Molly Parker

Taking the No. 7 spot on the NCRunners cross country pre-season countdown is Hoggard's Molly Parker.

Parker is one of the most well-rounded runners in North Carolina. On the track this spring she ran a personal best of 2:21 in the 800m and 5:08 in the 1600m. She qualified for the NCHSAA 4A state meet in the 1600m but opted to only run the 3200m. 

She ran a huge personal best in the 3200m at the state meet, she clocked 11:07, good for a runner-up finish.

She won the 2020 NCHSAA 4A East Regional in cross country and placed 3rd at the state meet behind two individuals who are not returning in 2021!

Parker has a personal best of 18:14 in the 5000m from a conference meet during the COVID season.

This is a loaded year of talent in North Carolina, and Molly Parker is arguably as talented as anyone else in the state.
