Back-to-back! Katherine Law ran at her best when it mattered most, and earned BLITZ Runner of the Year honors in the process for a second straight season.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS

  • Region 8-AAAA Champion
  • 4A State 5th Place

Katherine Law is always near the top in every meet she runs in. Typically coming in first, she was once again the region champion, and finished 5th in a tough field at state. She was the state champion a year ago. Her 17:55 PR speaks for itself.
