LHS Runners Earn Berths at Nike Nationals
Monday, November 26, 2018
Seven members of the Liverpool High School girls varsity country team have been selected to participate in the Nike Cross Nationals (NXN) to be held Saturday, December 1, in Portland, Oregon.
Selected to travel to Oregon were senior Windsor Ardner, junior Isabella Brancato, sophomore Sydney Carlson, sophomore Gabriella McCarthy, senior Emily Neuner, senior Madison Neuner and junior Jenna Schulz.
The students qualified after competing during the Nike Cross New York Regional this past weekend, where the team placed third. Individually Schulz placed sixth and Madison Neuner placed 10th. This is the second year in a row that the girls’ team from Liverpool will compete at the Nike Cross Nationals.
Only four New York State schools in state history have earned multiple Nike Nationals berths on both the boys and girls sides. Liverpool joins Fayetteville-Manlius, Saratoga Springs and Shenendehowa in that elite group. Members of the Liverpool boys cross country team competed in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
In all, 22 7-person club teams from across the country will compete during the Nike Cross Nationals, which will be broadcast live on the event’s Web site.
