The Woodlands High School cross country runner, Daniel Golden, has spent his season collecting titles, including 6A State Champion and Mile Split’s Cross Country Male Performer of the Year.

After watching his three older brothers go through the Highlander cross country program, Golden decided to follow in their footsteps when he was in the 7th grade. The following year brought on some growth spurts, but by the time he was a freshman, he was excited to have made it to the high school program.
