RE: Girl qualifies for Footlocker Nationals... declines invitation
I know runners have declined NXN invites, but they did it in order to compete at Foot Locker - our two NXN Southwest winners last year both did this and went on to qualify and run at FL nationals. But I haven't heard of the situation you are mentioning. Hopefully they gave the spot to the number 11 qualifier - that's what the Nike people did at NXN.
Best wishes to her - sounds like she is a very talented athlete. I'm sure if she is that good at soccer, she will also be eligible for a college soccer scholarship if that's what she wants.
I wonder when her soccer season is at school? Did she compete in high school xc meets, or was she like Lukas Verz. and just came out to run the post-season meets?
