New Braunfels Girls Cross Country 14th Best in the Nation

The Unicorn Cross Country girls ran to a 14th place finish in the Nike Cross National Championships last week. Not bad for their first time to this race, not knowing what to expect – and to do it in 13 degree windchill!
Once again, they secured their spot as the best team in the 5 state south region by outrunning the 2 other teams that qualified from the south region (both also from Texas).
What a great season! What an impressive group of you ladies!

The Unicorn girls XC team start their 2nd day here at Nike H.Q. in Oregon by going to practice at Portland Meadows, the site of the race on Saturday, in a snow storm! They can mark the snow off their list along with meeting several of the top athletes in their sport yesterday. We lost track of the number of olympians, and record holding professional runners just hanging out.
