Competing against 125 other runners in the Ultimook Nike Invitational in Tillamook, Long opened her sophomore season with a fourth-place individual finish in the varsity 5,000-meter race. She covered the course at Hydrangea Ranch in 21 minutes, 4.5 seconds. Coupled with a sixth-place finish from freshman teammate Lindsay Riutta, the Astoria girls placed second in the team standings behind Tillamook, out of 13 scoring teams.

The senior did it all for the Gulls in their season opener Aug. 30 vs. Henley at Broadway Field. Offensively, he averaged just over 10 yards per run, finishing with 221 yards rushing on 22 attempts. He scored six touchdowns, including a 47-yard sprint down the sideline with six seconds left in the second quarter, and a 49-yard run in the fourth quarter. On defense, he intercepted a pass for Seaside’s only turnover in the 55-13 win.
