VA Team Results
19. Jamestown - 381 pts
The Jamestown boys had a great season, but unfortunately did not have a great finish on Saturday at the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland, Oregon. Nationally ranked for much of the season and the NXN Southeast regional champions, the Eagles finished a disappointing 19th place out of 22 teams as the Southeast region boys continue to struggle at the team nationals. The Eagles had to deal with illness of one of their top five runners in Graham Schlickenmeyer this weekend while in Oregon and had subpar races from most of their top seven runners with the exception of junior Colin Mearns. Mearns was a bright spot for the AA state champions with a 28th place finishing time of 15:50. AA state individual champion Andrew Colley struggled for his second straight post-season race as he placed 46th in the field with a time of 16:01. The two Virginian individual qualifiers Ben Veilleux of Clarke County and Josh Hardin of Potomac Falls held their own against the national caliber field. Veilleux was the top finisher from the Southeast region with a 25th place effort of 15:46, while Hardin also ran under 16 minutes in 38th place at 15:58.
The lone two Virginia girls competing at NXN also did not fair as well on one of the best course conditions and weather days that the national meet has seen its 5 year meet history. Kathleen Lautzenheiser, ran faster than she did as a freshmen at Portland Meadows for Midlothian, but did not place as well as she wanted to in 52nd place for a time of 18:44. Blacksburg senior Allison Homer, a surprise qualifier out of the Southeast region, finished 96th in her first national cross country championship experience with a time of 19:11.
