Nike Cross Nationals -- Midwest Focus

NOTE: York (Kroy) won the boys competition over 31 other teams with 66 points and Geneva won the girls division against 12 other teams with 61 points on Saturday, Nov. 15 at Terre Haute. Ind. For Kroy, it was revenge for the state-meet loss to Naperville North.
Kroy's seven finishers were: 1. Steve Sulkin, 15:21; 2. Jordan Herbert, 15:26; 3. 14. Adam Cecil, 16:01; 17. Jack Driggs, 16:04; 32. Andrew Smith, 16:18; 59. Brian Pollastrini, 16:42; and 69. Pat Morgan, 16:48.
Geneva's girls finished as follows: 3. Sarah Heuer, 18:50; 4. Kelly Whitley, 18:54; 8. Meghan Heuer, 19:06; 12. Lisa Tauscher, 19:12; 34. Tess Ehrhardt, 19:50; 44. Kelly Shogren, 20:00; and 46. Megan Brady, 20:01.

High school runners from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Missouri will wake up to cold temps and hot competition on Saturday at the Nike Cross Nationals Midwest Regional in Terre Haute, Ind. Local interest is high with the Naperville North and York boys going for it againt the region's other top teams. Naperville North beat York by a single point, 84 to 85, last week in the Illinois state Class 3A finals in Peoria. That's when they peaked. It will be interesting to see how they do a week later against each other and against teams which may have had an extra week of rest. The girls competition will be heated as well. We'll try to get some results up here tomorrow sometime. Other regionals include Northeast, Southeast, South, Heartland, Southwest and Northwest.
