Parker Valby is Dominating the SEC in Collegiate Cross Country

One to watch as the Olympics come around the corner, my favorite Parker Valby is making college dreams come true.

The red-shirt athlete has taken cross-country by storm and is now a champ. Congrats PV. You deserve all the success coming into your life. You have overcome injury and never gave up … the heart of a champion.

Florida Redshirt Sophomore Parker Valby was named to the All-SEC Cross Country team by the Southeastern Conference.

Valby was named to the Women’s All-SEC First Team for the second time in her career. She was named SEC Women’s Freshman Runner of the Year and to the All-SEC First Team and All-SEC Freshman Team in 2021.

Valby competed in two races this season, placing first in both. At the Arturo Barrios Invite, she ran a 6K time of 18:58.2, which was a personal best at the time.

At the SEC Championships, Valby improved upon her prior performance by running 18:25.87 in the 6K, which broke the previous school record by 29.11 seconds. This new time was the fastest recorded 6K at a championship event in college cross-country history.
