ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Deerfield Windsor's Kelly Conway was looking for a third straight individual cross country championship Monday in Macon.

Kelly would face some tough competition. Grace Tinkey from FDP had beaten Kelly 3 times this season.

Kelly has recorded a time of 19:01 in Macon and would need a good time to compete with Grace.

Conway kept pace with Tinkey for the first half but there would be a new champion today.

Tinkey finished in first in 18 minutes 46 seconds.

Conway finished third in 19 minutes 53 seconds.

"She sped up and I just couldn't stick with her. I just slowed down a little bit and I wasn't able to keep up" said Conway.

Despite Monday's finish, Kelly was pleased with her season as she broke several personal records.
