Broughton, Spano, & Soo Move On to Nationals

It was a nasty day in Charlotte for the 30th Foot Locker South Region races, but a beautiful day for the ladies from North Carolina. 2002 was the last year a girl qualified for Nationals, but today two of them did. Kimberly Spano of North Meck finished in 8th place running 17:36 and Adrianne Soo of Durham Academy ran 17:39 for 10th.

**NOTE: Seth Crawford of NW Guilford, 2nd at the 4A state meet, started the Seeded race behind the Gator and close to a minute behind the field. He is listed at 16:40, so realize he probably broke 16:00 which includes chasing down the entire field.

Broughton was led by Blake Askin's 10th place finish in 15:37(Photo: User BelenXC). The rest of the Broughton team ran very well, too. Check out how they stacked up.
