From the solitary training to the grueling distances, it takes a special kind of athlete and a unique type of personality to run cross country, so it should come as no huge surprise that two of Galveston County’s best — Ball High’s Kelly Carmicheal and Texas City’s Colton Stunkard — clicked through competition and became fast friends.

“We were always pretty close in races; we went back and forth in the mile,” Carmicheal said. “You kind of become friends with people who you’re running close to.”
