Lady Jags hoist trophy for first time in program history.
Flower Mound High School claimed the University Interscholastic League Class 6A girls cross country state championship on Nov 24 at Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock. It was the first girls cross country state title for the Lady Jags, who had posted top-5 finishes in each of the previous three years.
“I’m proud of these girls and what they were able to accomplish this season,” FMHS head coach Andrew Cook said. “They were able to block out the distractions and come together as a team.”
The Lady Jags totaled 75 points to hold off runner-up Southlake Carroll (96) and The Woodlands (108) on the five-kilometer (3.1-mile) course.
The FMHS team was compiled of Ally Buemi, Natalie Cook, Nicole Humphries, Virginia Knight, Samantha Humphries, Hannah McLaughlin and Miranda Vreeland. Cook, who is the daughter of head coach Andrew Cook, led the way with a time of 18 minutes, 5.94 seconds. Her time was good for seventh overall.
