101 ESPN’s Senior Spotlight shines on Ryan Harness, a member of the Cross Country team at Festus High School!
For four years, Ryan was an alternate on the Six-time State Champion Cross County Team at Festus High School. He led the Festus Cross Country Junior Varsity Squad to a Championship at the Jefferson County Conference meet when he won the Junior Varsity meet while setting his personal record with a time of 17:52:02. Ryan also lead the Tiger JV team to a sweep during the conference meet!
Ryan used his leadership to help a squad that had been hit hard by whooping cough during the end of the season. Over the course of his senior year, Ryan shaved almost 2 minutes off his personal record for the 5K.
Ryan is an Eagle Scout and will be attending Truman State University in the fall where he plans to continue his distance running while majoring in biology.
