American Fork's dominance in Utah cross country continued this year, and now Gatorade has recognized one of the program's top runners.
Clayton Young has become the first-ever two-time winner of the Utah Gatorade cross country runner of the year award, after a season of steady performances. His best finish came at the Southwest regional meet, when he finished third with a time of 15:14.7. He finished third in the Class 5A state meet, and 24th over at nationals as the Cavemen finished sixth as a team.
A Gatorade news release also cited Young's 4.0 GPA and community service as an Eagle Scout as reasons for his selection.
With the award, American Fork claims three straight runner of the year awards. Austin West was honored the season before Young's first award.
