Snapp still running
The cross country season as we know it ended a week and a half ago, but Kaitlin Snapp hasn’t stopped. Come to think of it, she never does.
The Danville freshman, who won her third consecutive Class A girls championship at the state meet earlier this month, is headed to North Carolina this weekend to compete in the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships for the first time.
The Foot Locker series effectively crowns regional and national high school champions in a dozen different races. Snapp will run in the South Regional in Charlotte, N.C., one of four regionals to be held over the next two weeks, where she’ll compete against runners from 14 states and two U.S. territories. The top runners qualify for the national meet Dec. 13 in San Diego.
It’s the first time in this race for Snapp, who is one of 63 Kentuckians competing in Charlotte. And even as she was trying to add to her string of state titles, she said she was focusing on this race as well. “I’m real excited for that,” she said earlier this month. “I’ve been training to go there.”
