If not for Kailey Fox, we could nominate Fatima as the most improved athlete in the state across all lines. Giron did not advance to the state meet last year after having a solid overall season. During the fall things have come into place with improved training and maturity. She actually defeated Brooke Stromsland and Aly Negovetich several weeks during the conference meet. That's when I knew Giron was for real and had an opportunity to do something major on the big stage. Though she dropped seven notches from a week ago, this young lady is here to stay after running within herself. The result was an 11th place finish in the 3A title running 16:45.
