History repeated itself this weekend in Cedar City with Aimee Bryson of Cedar High School winning another SUU Cross Country Championship. Her winning time of 19:09 was 10 seconds faster than her winning time on the same course last season. Kamryn Watts of Hurricane was second for the second year in a row with a time of 20:17. Mallory Hendricks of Canyon View was 3rd in 20:23.
Bryson also led her Lady Reds as repeat champions of the team title as they won with 55 points over Desert Hills who had 70. Canyon View was 3rd with 84.
Bryson was the 3A State Champion in 2012, and looks to be in fine form entering this season. A pair of wins to start the season kick things off for her with this weekend at the SUU XC Championships, and last weekend at the Hurricane Invite.
