All-Pinellas County girls cross country



Katelyn Greenleaf, Jr., Northside Chr.

Why we picked her: Anointed as the county's top girls runner before the season, Greenleaf lived up to the billing with individual titles at nearly every major meet. And she set records. At the St. Petersburg City meet, Greenleaf set a Crescent Lake course record with a time of 18 minutes, 54 seconds, eclipsing the previous mark of 18:58 set by former Lakewood star Ali Crabb, now running at Florida. Greenleaf went on to win Bay Conference and district titles. At the Class A state meet, she had her fourth straight top-10 finish, taking ninth in a personal-best 18:39.

Did you know?: Greenleaf went out for cheerleading for the first time in high school this season. She plays soccer in the winter.

What's next: During track season in the spring, Greenleaf will focus on the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races. And she will run on the 4x800 relay team.

First team

Savannah Dearden, Sr., St. Petersburg: She teamed with Alex Eaton to help the Green Devils win team titles at the conference and St. Petersburg City meets.

Alex Eaton, Fr., St. Petersburg: The lead runner for the Green Devils won the large-school division at the pre-state meet.

Mary Hall, Sr., Seminole: She had the highest finish among county runners at the 4A region meet.

Alexis Irwin, So., Osceola: The conference champion placed 18th at the 3A meet in a personal-best 19:10.

Amanda Spring, So., Northeast: The Vikings' most consistent runner placed in the top 16 at the 4A region meet.

Erin Waterman, So., St. Petersburg: The strong runner finished in the top 10 in nearly every regular-season meet.
