St. Marys' Drazba earns Gatorade state cross country honor
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- St. Marys' Maggie Drazba was named the Gatorade West Virginia girls cross country runner of the year for the second straight time Thursday.
The 5-foot-1 senior captured her third Class AA-A individual state title in 2012. Drazba took third at the Foot Locker South Regional Championships to qualify for the national Foot Locker Cross Country Championships, where she finished 22nd in country.
Drazba, who has maintained a 4.05 grade-point average and is treasurer of her school's student body, is now a finalist for the Gatorade national award, which will be announced later this month.
