Emily Craig, Maryvale Prep, cross country
The standout senior, an All-Metro first-team selection last season, won the Lake Forest Invitational in Felton, Del., on Saturday to lead the Lions to the title in the 18-team field. Battling 95-degree heat, Craig came across in 20 minutes, 1 second — 21 seconds in front of the runner-up. In earning All-Metro honors last season, Craig won the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference race to lead Maryvale to its first championship. She also competes in indoor and outdoor track and field. During the indoor season, she swept the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter races at the IAAM A Conference championships. Craig has not yet decided where she will run in college.
