The seven-member boys Southlake team competed against the best runners in the nation at Nike Cross Nationals in Portland, Ore. on Saturday and came away 19th in the nation. This is the 11th year that Nike has hosted this prestigious meet for the top two boys and top two girls teams in each of the eight regions around the country.

Light rain and temperatures in the mid-50s welcomed the runners to the new course at the Glendover Golf Course, which was filled with hills and plenty of mud.

The boy’s team entered the NXN as the South Region champions and placed 19th. Eli Canal captured 85th place, Reed Brown came in 99th, Ansel Richards crossed the line next for the Southlake boys in 117th place, Eric Karl 143rd, Michael Waugh 152nd, Johnny Kemps 169th and Timou Toure 187th.

“The Nike Cross Nationals meet is the best possible way to end the season or a high school career and we couldn’t be more proud of the boys’ entire season,” said Head Coach Justin Leonard. “Only .0008 percent of high school runners have the opportunity to compete at a meet of this magnitude. Its remarkable to think our boys team has qualified eight times and the girls team has qualified nine times out of the 11 years of its existence. It was a great season and I can’t wait until next year.”
