The No. 8 spot on our girls cross country pre-season team countdown are the Knights of Ardrey Kell.
Junior Anna Wells is coming off an all-state performance in cross country last season, and was runner-up at the NCHSAA 4A West Regional. Her personal best of 18:41 came during her regional performance.
Sophomore Emily Boland ran 19:23 over 5000m last season, which was NC No. 16 among her class.
Caitlyn Peck and Taylor Fenton both ran in the 19:50's last season for 5000m. Rising senior Paige Harvey ran 20:08 last season, so look for Peck and Fenton to be pushing with Harvey in that mid-to-high 19:00 range. If they can keep the gap small between the three of them that is a very strong 3-4-5 group to go with Wells and Boland.
