League: Division I Southeast
Head coach: Natalie Thomas, 16th season
Returning letter winners: Four
Top athletes: Erica Williams (Jr.), Brooke Noorda (Sr.), Aine Jones (Jr.), Kaitlin Hock (Sr.)
Outlook: The Falcons won their first Sunrise Region title since 2006 last year, but lost the region individual champion, Karina Haymore, who transferred to Centennial.
Williams finished 10th in the region meet, Noorda was 17th, and Jones took 21st, giving the Falcons three solid runners around whom to build.
Thomas also expects juniors Sydnee Farrer and Josabet Morales, sophomores Myna Buckley and Mckenzie Flynn and freshman Emily Slatoff to contend for spots in the team’s top seven.
