Girls #CountdownToXC Day 7: Vista Murrieta

There aren't many teams that can say they elevated their performance at the state meet like Vista Murrieta did last fall. With #1 runner Paige Haynes in the top 7 the Broncos finished 5th in the Southern Section finals; without her, they still managed to finish 7th in the Division 1 race at Woodward Park! That's the essence of bringing your best when it matters the most, and it bodes well for this season because Vista Murrieta returns 5 of their top 7. Haynes was clearly back to 100% in the spring, as she led a tremendous season for the Broncos with her 10:53 3200. This team's 1600 stats are incredibly impressive: 8 returners under 5:30, 5 under 5:15, 4 under 5:10 (with returning #2 Annabelle Werner heading the list). According to our database, Vista Murrieta has the 5th-best returning top 5 in the Southern Section (counting all divisions). The Broncos are for real this fall, and they look like a podium team come November.
