Weaver is fast and proves it by training with the Stillwater boys cross country team.

"They have accepted me and it’s so much fun to train with them. They truly push me to try to go faster than I ever have before," Weaver adds. "I love running with the girls on my team too, it’s the best of both worlds and I’m just trying to soak in as much as I can before my senior year is over," said Weaver.

Weaver is currently ranked fourth in the nation in girls cross country and plans on running for Brigham Young University next year in college. Both the men’s and women’s programs at BYU are ranked number #1 and number #2 respectively.
