Winner: Dathan Ritzenhein
Repeat champion. Continues 2-year undefeated string in HS cross country and track.  Heat and a slow first mile (4:47) block record, but still second fastest Foot Locker final ever. 


Winner: Sara Bei
Completing her comeback from a disappointing 10th place regional finish a year ago.  Third trip to the finals is a charm with a thrilling stretch win over Anita Siraki.  Several girls complained of heat, including Alicia Craig, who fell out of contention in the third mile.  

The king and queen of high school cross country are crowned in the Foot Locker championships.  Four regional championships send the top eight boys and top eight girls to Orlando, where the 32-runner finals are contested on a golf course at Disney World.
