St. Francis Girls Going to Nike XC Nationals

November 28, 2012 By: John Blue Category: Cross Country, High School

Now to Portland!

The St. Francis Girls took second place at the Division I State Cross Country meet (and was scored 2nd place in California Power Merge).

The team’s top finisher was Junior Lauren Larocco, who came in 16th with a 18:10.

St. Francis has been invited to race at Nike Cross Nationals in Portland, Oregon, and we’ve heard that they’ve accepted the invitation.

There were several other local teams and individuals at the State Meet, too. How did they do?

I don’t have enough time to track down all the individual results, but some notable results include:

Maggie Bell, a Granite Bay freshman, won the Division 2 race in 17:29.

Fiona O’Keefe, a Davis freshman, was 6th in Division 1 with 17:49.

Trent Brendel, a Granite Bay senior, finished 10th in Division 2 with 15:30.

Other local team finishes were:

Amador Valley (Division 1): Girls 18th

Davis Senior High School (Division 1): Girls 5th and Boys 15th.

Del Campo (Division 2): Boys 10th

Del Oro (Division 3): Girls 12th

Dixon (Division 4): Boys 18th, Girls 21st

El Dorado (Division 3): Boys 13th

Granite Bay (Division 2): Girls 14th

Jesuit (Division 2): Boys 18th

Placer (Division 3): Boys 11th

Vacaville Christian (Division 5): Girls 21st.

Well done, all!

Please let me know (in the comments) if I’ve missed anyone. There were a lot of results to dig through and I’m not familiar with all the schools.

The complete results for the State Meet are here.

(Updated to include notable individual results.)
