Since 2004 the Nike Cross Nationals has brought the fastest high school cross country teams and athletes in the country to Portland, Oregon to compete for the ultimate prize – a national championship. In its 11th year, the Nike Cross Nationals will be contested for the first time ever at Glendoveer Golf Course.
MileSplit got the juice coast to coast this past weekend, which included some stellar performances as some of the nation's best went head to head.
North Central (WA) senior Tanner Anderson, ranked #4 in the Saucony Flo50 national rankings, crushed the course record on the 3 mile course at the Richland Invitational with a swift time of 14:36. Anderson also helped the North Central boys to their first major invitational win of the season as they look to turn things around down the finishing stretch of the season for another Nike Cross Nationals team berth. Anderson was 50 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor, which he was hoping that Saucony Flo50 #5 ranked John Dressel would also be racing at the meet with his Mountain Spokane squad entered in the meet, but was a no show.
