“Morrell not only helped Cheyenne Central secure back-to-back team championships, but she also benefited from the confidence gained via several strong, regular-season races in Colorado. She improved by nearly a minute at the state final from a year ago, elevating from fourth place in 2021 to capture the individual title.”
