Before Emma Curry left departed for Old Settler Glenn and Round Rock for the 6A state cross country championships, she said one of her goals was to finish in the top-25. The other was to break the 5,000-meter Lady Indians program record.
The Waxahachie sophomore finished 77th out of 150 runners Saturday morning in the 5,000-meter race. She did so in a new program-record 18:54.
Ashlyn Hilyard, a senior from Plano, won the 6A state championship with a 16:38. Hilyard kept a 5:20 pace per mile, while Curry ran at 6:03.
Curry ends the cross country season with the program record in the three-mile (18:08.89) and the 5k, previously owned by Allyson Moore.
She also holds the fastest times on the track in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races and as a member of the distance medley relay.
