State Championship Titles of Tallahassee & Leon County High School Cross-Country Teams, 1947-2010

Last year I put together a list of all the state championship performances by Leon County high school teams and individuals up through 2009, using the FHSAA Boys Cross Country Championship Records and the FHSAA Girls Cross Country Championship Records. End of story, right? No, the Chiles High School girls team had to go and make my list out-of-date by winning their the FHSAA-3A state title on 20 November 2010, their third straight. So the revised 2010 list is below.


There were other creditable performances by area athletes that didn't require updating the list, but should still be mentioned. The Leon High School boys team placed third in FHSAA-3A, with Riley Doherty (4th, 15:48.44) and John Hazleton (7th, 15:54.49) finishing in the top ten. Lincoln High School was ninth in the same race, and Chiles was 13th. In the FHSAA-2A boys' race, Godby High School's Dieumy Duclos was 11th in 16:19.33. Led by Patrick Swain's (4th, 15:44.71) top ten finish, the Maclay boys' team placed third in FHSAA-1A. Maclay's Kristin Sweeney (7th, 18:30.97) cracked the top ten in the FHSAA-1A girls' competition, leading Maclay to a ninth-place performance.


So, the list.
