The fastest returning boys runners within the Foot Locker West Region for the upcoming 2014 cross country season between the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Two one of the fastest high school girls in United States history found themselves mixing it up with the Kenyans and Ethiopians in the women's 1500 meter finals at the 2014 World Junior Championships between Elise Cranny from Colorado and Alexa Efraimson from Washington. Watch their race video and post-race video interviews.
Alexa Efraimson might have run the cleanest and smartest race in the history of World Championships 1500 meter prelims. Okay that might be an exaggeration, but still the rising Camas High School (WA) senior Efraimson ran an incredibly smart and energy efficient race to set herself up well for the finals. Watch her post-prelims race interview from World Juniors.
Effective with the 2015 high school track and field season, the prohibition of jewelry will be eliminated. This was one of several rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track and Field Rules Committee at its June 16-18 meeting in Indianapolis. The committee’s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
