The Nike Cross nationals is a meet comprised of eight regional qualifying meets in the United States. Bethany and Megan qualified for the national meet at the Nike Cross Heartland race on November 9. Bethany took first place in the race with a time of 17:06 and Megan took third in 17:18.
It wrapped up another great cross-country season for the sisters from Alexandria. Megan won the Class AA state title this season, while Bethany took second.
