Name: Danny Carney
School: Dakota Ridge
Sport: Cross Country
Got Game: After finishing oh-so-close to an individual state title in Class 5A last season (just five seconds away), it’s Carney’s time to shine. The senior had an outstanding postseason, finishing third at the Nike Cross Nationals Southwest Regional before claiming 26th in the national race. His 15:25 in the regional meet was a personal best. If he even approaches such an impressive time this year, he could be one of the nation’s finest runners. We'll be looking for him to represent Colorado well as the postseason meets get underway later this year.
