She truly understands the meaning of a servant leader. She has taken her younger teammates under her wing and tried to teach them about cross country and teamwork.

During the 2020 season in five races prior to the District Meet, she placed 2nd in the first two meets and won the next three. She set a new personal record this season at the Lovejoy Fall Festival with a time of 17:38.2, then at the UIL State Meet beat that personal record with a time of 17:29.01.

Cameron is also a strong student academically. She will be attending Vanderbilt University on a cross country/track & field scholarship.

We are so proud of you!!

Go Scots!!
