Clouds Break, Finnane Flies to 22nd at Footlocker National Championships
Toni Finnane (15) finished her first and final high school cross country season as an All-American by competing in the Footlocker National Championships at San Diego's Balboa Park on Saturday, December 13.
The all expenses paid trip began on Thursday morning, checking into the Hotel del Coronado as the best runners in the country converged for the most competitive prep cross country race in the world. In spite of raining weather, athletes enjoyed a course preview on Friday, jogging with Olympians like Molly Huddle, Meb Keflezighi, Ryan Hall, and Adam Goucher. That was followed by a special screening of Disney's upcoming film, McFarland, staring Kevin Costner.
In Saturday's race, the sun finally broke through the clouds, and Finnane battled through the later stages of the course to finish a remarkable 22nd out the top 40 distance runners in the nation. The weekend was then concluded with an extravagant awards ceremony!
