Foot Locker Cross Country Championships

Check out photos of the girls race at Foot Locker Championships.

On Saturday, the best high school runners in the country gathered in San Diego to compete at Foot Locker Cross Country Championships. To earn a chance to compete in the 5K championship at Balboa Park, runners had to finish within the top 10 of their regional races (North, South, Midwest and West).

Anna Rohrer, a senior from Mishawaka, Indiana, won the girls race in 17:13, 10 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor. Rohrer also won the race in 2012 as a sophomore. Following her win, Rohrer said, “I’m a strong advocate of never looking back. I’m going to race as fast as I can and if they catch me they catch me. There’s nothing I can do about it.” Very inspiring words from a teenager!
