SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Tessa Barrett of Waverly, Pa., and Grant Fisher of Grand Blanc, Mich., captured first place titles at the 35th Annual Foot Locker Cross Country Championships National Finals on Saturday.
In the girls 5K race, Barrett took control after a swift opening mile and never looked back. The boys race, however, was undecided until the last 100 meters when Fisher unleashed his final in a series of surges to take a heart-pumping 3-second victory.
Utah's Lucy Biles (seventh in 17:43) set a swift pace early on, with the pack still bunched as it approached the first trip through the hilliest portion of the Balboa course.
Ogden High senior Sarah Feeny ran 14th overall in 17:52. The top 15 finishers are awarded All-America status.
In the boys race, Fisher won a dramatic back-and-forth duel in the final half-mile with Dressel, in 15:07.
Sky View's Conner Mantz ran seventh.
