This marks the third time this season that Griffin Stephens takes Runner of the Week honors. The senior put up a time of 16:58 in claiming the Region 8-AA title last week, and was even better in claiming his first state championship. In that meet on November 2, he timed a 16:44 to beat all 2A runners. It was Stephens’ time to shine, as he was runner-up two straight years in region, and 3rd as a sophomore and runner-up last year at state.
