Athlete: Samantha Nelson
School: Desert Hills
Samantha Nelson is about to begin her first ever season of XC. She started running her sophomore year in track and then was injured her entire junior year of XC. Then came her junior year of track where she just blew away the competition. She ran times of 5:11.05 for 1600m and 10:57.56 for 3200m. The big question now is can Samantha be able to adjust to XC coming off a stellar track season.
