On the girls' side, Abi Archer (Chaparral, Sr.) was the fastest girl in the State with a 17:01 performance at Desert Twilight and clinched a D1 State Title last month. However, upon her return to Francisco Grande Golf Course Sam Schadler (Rio Rico, Sr.) secured the victory as the Nike Cross Southwest Regional Champion in 17:06 for a lifetime best. Archer also qualified for Nike Cross Nationals to represent the Southwest region, along with Hana Hall (Jr.) from Flagstaff, AZ.
Meanwhile, the overall Arizona girls that ran both races on average raced the Nike Cross Southwest Regionals three seconds slower than at Desert Twilight. Check out how Arizona girls fared at both races along the state's fastest course.
