Ella Rankin is the MAIS 6A Cross Country State Champion!

Hartfield ninth-grader Ella Rankin defended her title by securing the State Champion title in this year's MAIS AAAAAA Cross Country State Championship. Ending an impressive finish to an impressive season, this athlete certainly represents the best and brightest of what Hartfield Athletics has to offer.
Last year, Ella secured the MAIS AAAAAA title, and this year she continues to bring home the gold! Ella always works hard in practice with her efforts paying off as she maintained a remarkable season-long performance. She continues to impress as her times have been against top-level Varsity athletes.
Ella saved her best race of the season for the final event, the MAIS Overall Meet on October 24th. Ella finished first out of 47 runners and was crowned the MAIS AAAAAA State Champion.  During this race, she finished with a time of 19:09:55. 

Well done and congratulations, Ella!
