On Friday, the Foxes girls’ cross-country program made history at the VHSL State 4A Cross-Country Championships, in The Plains.

After a stellar season that featured a first place finish in the 4A North Conference Cross-Country Championship, King George High School senior, Miranda Green has captured the spotlight once again as the first girl in school history to make All-State with her ninth place finish. In a field of 27 schools, Green finished the race with a time of 19:12—one second ahead of Heritage (Leesburg) sophomore runner, Georgie Mackenzie (19:13.00).

Only the top 15 runners were recognized for All-State finishes.

With a regional field much tougher than in the past the team ran their heart out to make it to the ultimate race. Then the majority of the team had personal bests. What more could you ask for.”


E.C. Glass freshman, Libby Davidson (18:28.00) edged Jefferson Forest junior Erin Saunders (18:32.00) for the overall 4A girl’s title.

Groups 6A, 5A, and 4A held their championships on Friday.

As a team, the Foxes set a new school record with a seventh place finish (159 points). Jefferson Forest took home first place team 4A honors, while E.C. Glass placed second for the final All-District team spot. Under the new classification, the VHSL is only recognizing the top two teams with trophies and awards
Thrilled with her team’s performance, King George High School cross-country head coach Cathy Binder said, “What can you say about a group of 12 that came, saw and conquered the state cross-country meet,” Binder said. “With a regional field much tougher than in the past the team ran their heart out to make it to the ultimate race. Then the majority of the team had personal bests. What more could you ask for.”

As for the boys’ 4A winners, Midlothian senior Tommy Mulroy took home the individual championship with a time of 15:39.00. Mulroy’s team also took home team first place honors (32 points), while Millbrook finished second with 76 points.

The top Fox runner was Jacob Watson, who placed 30th with a time of 17:01.00. Watson’s teammate, Christian Koon finished 60th (17:33.00).
