First off, Congratulations to all 8 athletes who have qualified for NXN this year. The girls team won the Northwest regional to join 21 other teams to compete in Portland. This is the 5th time the girls team has been at NXN. Camila Noe led the team with a first place finish at the regional setting the course record in Boise. Duncan Hamilton took second at the Northwest regional to join 44 other individuals from across the country that join the teams for individual honors. It is the first time an individual has represented Bozeman at NXN.
Huge congrats–Boys win and the girls place 8th. What a year. Go to runnerspace.com/nxn for complete results.
Just listened to a radio broadcast and Christina moved into contention with 150meters to go and ended up with the first US medal in the 1500 ever in a PB of 4:08.
See you all tonight–Nancy Creel

That’s right–the girls won for the second time with two all region and the boys took second with two all region. This is the first time a boys team from Montana has qualified and the 4th for girls teams from Montana.
Congrats from the Creel family to all the athletes and coaches!
Various Bozeman XC alumni who are now running in college will running on Saturday at Bridger Creek Golf Course at the Montana State Cross Country BRC Invitational. The men’s 5 mile starts at 9am and the women’s three mile starts at 9:45. If you can’t make it to Mountain West this is a fun way to get your XC fix on a fall day.
Billings JV Invite results are up at Competitivetiming.com and Mountain West results will be there as well on Saturday. NC
Competitive Timing provided the results for the invite this past weekend. They will also be timing Mountain West with instant results.
Here’s a great little story on MSU’s super star Cristian Soratos. His story is very inspirational as he was not a standout HS runner recruited to D1 schools. His next meet is the West Regional this coming weekend.
Here’s a nice little post from the Billings Gazette with lists of who has prequalified for state for all of the classes that have those standards.
