RECAP- 2014 AAU Cross Country National Championships

RECAP- 2014 AAU Cross Country National Championships

By: Julianne Sautner

The AAU Cross Country Nationals are a wrap for another year. The 2014 competition took place last Saturday, December 6th in Lawrence Kansas. The best of the best athletes from all across the country traveled to Rim Rock Farm at the University of Kansas on Friday to check in, pick up their packets and walk the courses that they would run for the championship the following day.

Races began bright and early on Saturday morning and although the temperatures were in the 40's the athletes were warmed up and ready to run! The National Anthem kicked off the event at 8:50 followed by a gunshot signaling the start of the first race promptly at 9:00AM.  12 races were conducted in the meet with a total of 12 divisions between the boys and girls. Awards were given after the conclusion of each race, wrapping up the day with the team awards given to the team with the highest compilation of scores.

The California Comets left Kansas back on top this year stealing back the overall team title from the Derby City Athletic Club who disrupted their 3 year winning streak, taking home the title in 2013.
