The No. 1 and No. 3 runners on the Seymour High School girls cross-country team missed a good portion of the meets this fall because of injuries.

Hays battled through a bout of tendinitis and earned Hoosier Hills Conference honors, and then she led all Jackson County girls timewise in the postseason, during which the Owls made it to semistate.
