Silverton High School senior Morgan Anderson’s name will be in the school’s record book for girls cross country.
This season, she took sixth place at the 2011 5A state cross country meet at Lane Community College on Nov. 5. Her time of 18:54 for 3.1 miles is a school record. She took first place with a time of 19 minutes at the Mid-Willamette Conference District Meet.
“It’s like really big year for me,” Anderson said. “Being my senior year, I put in a lot of work this season. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do well this year.”
With Anderson’s leadership the Silverton Lady Foxes took fourth place at district, up from seventh place a year ago.
“The future looks very promising for both the girls and boys teams,” head coach Erik Cross said, “even with graduating the strong leadership and performances of our seniors.”
