4A Individual Rankings: Cruz Time To Shine, Boys Battle Brewing Between Diaz And Marquez

St. Thomas Aquinas sophomore Alexa Cruz finished runner-up at last year's 4A Cross Country Finals behind Bridget Blake. Blake has since moved onto FSU opening the door for a new champion. Cruz has the fastest time coming in, but finished a disappointing 27th at Pre-State. Since then she has won both county and district championships. Will she be ready for November 9th? On the boys side the battle for first is HEATED. In their only head to head matchup of the year Diaz edged out Marquez by less than a second at Pre-State. Great news for cross country fans everywhere, Diaz is just a junior and Marquez only a sophomore!
