Goethals wins national XC title in photo finish

Imagine running 5,000 meters and then have the race decided by your ability to lean?

That’s what happened this weekend at the Footlocker Girls National Cross-Country championships in San Diego.

For the first time in the 31-year history of the premier high school race in the sport, the top two finishers had the same time.

Megan Gothals of Rochester (Mich.) High was declared the winner in a photo finish. Chelsey Sveinsson of Dallas (Texas) Greenhill School was second. Both girls were given a time of 17:07.

“The finish was amazing,” Gabriella Citrin of FootLocker said.
