Lily-ana Campbell wasn’t sure what to expect when this season began. And not just because of the COVID-19 pandemic shortening it.
Fresh off a move from North Dakota to the Sunshine State, the Navarre sophomore knew running cross-country was going to present a different kind of challenge.
Through it all, particularly the heat and humidity, Campbell persevered. She capped a regular season like no other with a top five finish at the EscaRosa Meet in Pensacola last Thursday.
Campbell maintained a steady pace over a bit of a rugged 3.1-mile course that included an incline, sand and the woods, and crossed the finish line in a time of 21:26.62.
