2012 XTERRA World Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua on the island of Maui

From the following article link:
"Among the age-group amateurs, a pair of California teenagers took the spotlight. Neilson Powless from Roseville, Calif. (tallest one in picture to the left), was the top overall amateur with a time of 2:42:36, while Hannah Rae Finchamp from Altadena, Calif., was the top female amateur in 3:05:56.

Powless is 16 and a sophomore at Roseville High School; Finchamp is 17 and a junior at Maranatha High School."

I believe Powless's triathlon season is over now and he can turn his attention fully to running.  He finished 3rd at the Stanford Invitational in 15:49 in the Division 2 race.  At the more recent, Crystal Springs Invitational, Powless ran 15:17 to finish 7th in the Championship Varsity race.  Considering he is a sophomore, Powless will be a force to be reckoned with out on the trails as well.

Nielson attends Roseville High School, not Roesevelt.
