Tallahassee Leon cross country star Sukhi Khosla has had minimal opportunities to be challenged. When you've already run sub-15 minutes twice before on the state course, that tends to happen. Racing for just his second time on Tallahassee's Sunny Hill Farms course, last year's 3A state cross country and 1600- and 3200-meter track champion posted a stunning new career best to win the Region 1-3A championship. Khosla crossed in a state leading and US#10 time of 14:52.9— just six seconds away from an all-time Florida high school best — and Leon's next three runners all had PRs, leading the Lions to a regional title ahead of Tallahassee Chiles.
