Giddens finishes 17th at state cross country meet

Taylor County High’s Meagan Giddens finished 17th out of 180 qualifiers in the state class 2A cross country meet held Saturday at the Tallahassee Appalachee Regional Cross Country Course.

Giddens completed the hilly course with a time of 19:38. The opening pace was very fast thanks to the quick start of second place finisher Desha Rogers. Giddens ran throughout the race with a group not far behind the eventual winner Julia Montgomery from Pine Crest and fought hard over the hills and rugged terrain to finish 43 spots higher than her 60th place finish of 2012.
