Seminole-in-waiting Elizabeth Funderburk is Gatorade Georgia Girls Cross-Country Runner of the Year

Gatorade has named Colquitt County High senior Elizabeth Funderburk as 2017-2018 Georgia Girls Cross-Country Runner of the Year.


During the 2017 cross-country season, Funderburk won the Georgia High School Cross-Country Meet of Champions girls' 5K and the GHSA Class 7A Cross-Country Championships girls' 5K. Tallahassee, Florida cross-country fans may remember seeing her win the girls' race at the Cougar Cross-Country Challenge at Phipps Park and the Girls' Elite 5K at the Florida State Cross-Country Invitational at Apalachee Regional Park.
