When you bring home top five finishes in several events at the state finals, not including two championships, naturally the accolades come flowing in.

That's the case for Brevard High School track stars Noah Graham, Andrew Robinson and Eliza Witherspoon, who were all recently named to the WNC Athletic all-conference team.

The trio put together solid performances all season, but saved their best for last at the 2A state championship meet held two weeks ago.

Witherspoon was the standout for the girls' side.

She was part of the 4x800 meter relay team that finished sixth, then ran a school record time of 5:19 in the 1,600 meter run, which was good for fifth place, before finishing third in the 3,200 meter run.

Graham dominated the boys' long distance events, finishing first in the 1,600 meter run and the 3,200 meter run.

He also finished third in the 800 meter run.

Robinson's performance was not to be overshadowed, as he completed the 3,200 meter run just a few seconds behind Graham for a third place finish.

The duo's strong results helped Brevard finish fifth in the boys' team standings, despite only participating in a few events.
