The No. 6 spot on our girls team cross country pre-season countdown are the Pioneers of Watauga!
Watauga returns their entire top five from a team that won the 2020 NCHSAA 3A West Regional scoring only 25 points! They are led by defending-individual regional champion Sidra Miller! Miller was on a hot streak last season winning her first six cross country races of the season leading up to the regional.
If juniors Gwendolyn Anderson and Brianna Anderson can push up with Cathey and Beach, their 2-5 behind Miller could be very strong. Gwendolyn was 7th at the cross country regional and Brianna was 10th.
The reclassification puts Watauga up in the 4A classification going forward.
