Girls: LRC 2016 NXN Girls’ Preview: Fayetteville-Manlius Favored For 10th (!!!) National Title; Consensus U.S. #1 Brie Oakley Takes on 4:07 1500 Runner Kate Murphy in Individual Race American distance fans, it’s time to meet Brie Oakley. Oakley, who only started running last year, posted the top Tully Runners speed rating in six years at the Colorado state meet (32 secs faster than Katie Rainsbergerran in ’15) but Murphy hasn’t lost all fall and has killer track speed. Team-wise, F-M are the favorites but will need all five scorers to run well as there’s a big gap to #6.
Boys: LRC 2016 NXN Boys’ Preview: Casey Clinger Looks To Make History & Lead American Fork (UT) To Its First National Title No boy has ever won two NXN individual titles, but defending champ Casey Clinger could do just that on Saturday. He’s also the top man on the nation’s top team, American Fork, which will be looking to improve on its runner-up finish last year and win it all in Portland.
