The LHSAA Class B XC State Meet was a close battle between Episcopal of Acadiana and Christ Episcopal School with a mere separation of 13 points. Christ Episcopal is returning all of its runners that competed at the state meet last year and most likely look to claim the state title. The team's strong suit lies with low-stick senior Svenya Stoyanoff and a close pack of the team's 2-5 runners.  Surprisingly, the team did not fill out its 7 available spots at the state meet and some other meets during the season, which could spell trouble if one of its runners comes down with injury.

Junior Amelia Kate Thompson is the 6th man for the Wildcats and concluded her state meet race with a personal best of 25:27 and a 34th place finish. An interesting note to this performance is that this was her first-ever cross country season.

Junior Ivy Hunt finished in 14th place overall at the Class B state meet and concluded her season with a season-best of 20:42 for 3 Miles. In the past years, Hunt has been a familiar face on the podium in the Class B field, with podium finishes in cross country, 1600m, and 3200m. Hunt is still a very valuable 5th runner for the team and could secure crucial points for this next season.

8th-grader Sophia Dominguez ran minimally during the 2020 cross country season but managed to pull off a 13th place finish at the state meet and a personal best of 21:16 for 3 Miles earlier in the season. She is still a young runner and could show some more experience this season. It would not be surprising to see Dominguez slide into the top 10 at the state meet this year. 

8th-grader Noah Watson was the Wildcat's 3rd runner at the Class B state meet this past year and held down a solid 6th place finish. The middle schooler even dipped below 20 minutes for the 3-mile distance with a performance of 19:58. On top of that, this was Watson's first-ever year of competition. During the track season, Watson took home a second-place finish in the 1600m behind her teammate, Svenya Stoyanoff, and recorded personal bests of 5:48 in the 1600m and 2:38 in the 800m. Watson is a very young talent for the Wildcats that looks to have a bright future. 

Freshman Addie Lee finished in 5th place at the state meet, which is not too shabby for someone's first-ever season of cross country. She also managed to score a personal best of 19:36 earlier in the season, on top of her all-state performance. During the track season, she took home a third-place finish in the 3200m and garner personal records in the 3200m with a 12:46 and in the 800m with a 2:38. Much like Watson, Lee is a young talent that will most likely be the future of Christ Episcopal.

Senior Svenya Stoyanoff is returning to defend her state title and is easily one of the best talents returning this year. The ten-time state champion will be, by far, the fastest returning runner in the Class B field, if not in the entire state. During the 2020 cross country season, she ran a personal best of 18:40 and also finished 7th in a stacked field at the Mobile Challenge of Champions. During the track season, Stoyanoff continued to improve with personal records in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m with times of 2:24, 5:17, and 11:57, respectively.
