In his post-race interview, Liam Anderson said the grass and muddiness of the NCS course prepared him for NXN. Looks like the conditions that were bad for race day really helped out in the long run, and I still wonder how Dublin would have raced at NXN.

Dublin raced at Footlocker West, you can find the results here, they split the group in different races.

So happy for Meika as he's getting healthier and healthier, can't wait to see him kick butt at Nationals...Congrats to Collin too for a great race & another shout out to St. Francis boys for another insane season & Liam Anderson for an incredible finish at NXN.

Sadly I heard Mari went down with 150M to go (I didn't see her since we were helping Olivia since she went down on the back side with about less than a mile to go) but again a great senior year by Mari and wishing her the very best at OSU! Great job NorCal Teams and Runners!!! We were represented really well this Fall! #NorCalHSXCRocks

Kumar finishing 38th at NXN is amazing and a great inspiration for upcoming runners in the SF program. He is one of the greatest runners from WCAL and CCS.

In the Footlocker West Seeded Race, Connor Livingston (DeLaSalle) placed 20th and Henry Saul (Palo Alto) placed 24th. Both were awarded Third Team All-West and were top 10 underclass finishers which earns them top 10 seed in next year's Footlocker race.
