Champion Hilton NY girls get big welcome home
How big a deal was the Hilton girls' NTN title? Well, after a police escort to the airport on the way to Portland, it was obviously even better coming home. 100+ people met them at the airport along with ALL FIVE local TV stations according to Hilton assistant Seth Blodgett. "We just had a parade in the school. The girls walked through the halls followed by our marching band and all the other students lined the halls cheering for them." [Don Rich, Northeast regional editor]
Betsy Bies SD (red sweat band) and Anne St. Geme CA duelled for 2 miles before Bies pulled away late. As the top Foot Locker West region finisher, St. Geme qualified for FL national finals in San Diego next Saturday. Bies already qualified last Saturday by finishing second in the Midwest regional.
Kenny Klotz OR was the winner of a 3-way battle with Jack Bolas NC and Noah Shannon CO. It was the third straight major win for Klotz (OR state meet and OR-WA BorderClash). He heads for San Diego now for Foot Locker finals along with Taylor Nepon of Mead WA, who were the top two Foot Locker West finishers at NTN.

Acosta winning in 15:38, one second ahead of Ben Sitler and only 9 seconds separating first from eighth. California boys issue a challenge to Illinois for next Saturday in San Diego.
