Watson is Gatorade XC Runner of the Year

Glastonbury senior Reid Watson has been named the girls' cross country Gatorade State Runner of the Year for Connecticut. The senior won state open and Class LL titles in the fall, then ran 15th at the New England Cross Country Championships.

Watson's coach is quoted in the official Gatorade announcement:

“Having Reid on the team is like having another coach,” said Glastonbury head coach Brian Collins. “She’s been a great inspiration to all levels of runners. She took over a young and inexperienced team and helped guide them to a very successful season.”
