Loyola Runners Have Last Hurrah
York (Elmhurst XC Club), Neuqua Valley (Naperville XC Club) and Loyola Academy (Wilmette XC Club), had their pride on the line Saturday at the Nike Nationals high school cross-country final in Oregon. Neuqua Valley had won the IHSA state meet and York the Nike Midwest Regional, so it was Loyola's turn in the big 5K test out west. The Ramblers (Wilmette XC Club), who beat York three times during the regular season, placed 4th at the nationals with 208 points. Neuqua Valley (I mean Naperville XC) was 12th with 292 points and York (Elmhurst) was 13th of the 22 teams that came from 'cross the country, scoring 295. Congrats to all the runners on these three powerhouse teams. They have been running at the "A" level this entire season.
