FLYRA Middle School State Championship Preview

This Saturday will be the seventh running of the FLYRA Middle School State XC Championship, and the fifth on the increasingly-beautiful Holloway Park course.  The impact of the FLYRA State Championship series on the high school cross country scene over the last five years is powerful and undeniable.  The list of previous medalists at this race reads like a who's-who of Florida high school XC runners; Kurt Convey, Brandon Marquez, Tsion Yared and Rafaella Gibbons are just a sampling of the accomplished past champions.  And the top eighth-graders on Saturday will not just be varsity high school runners next year - they'll be All-County, All-District and, for some of them, All-State.  Here's a look at who we might see on the podium.
