Top 2017 Team Finish: 1st at Region 9, 3rd at Utah Class 4A, 6th at NXR-SW
Coach: Logan Fielding
Top Returner: Bailey Brinkerhoff
Analysis: Desert Hills is looking really good for this upcoming XC season. Not only do they return all 7 of their varsity runners from last year. They also will add Samantha Nelson to the XC roster as well. Nelson has never run cross country before. Her junior year she was injured and unable to compete but for track, she ran new PRs and State Elite times of 5:11.05 for 1600m and 10:57.56 for 3200m. Brinkerhoff and Nelson will surely be one of the strongest 1, 2 punches in the entire State.
