Northern Burlington sophomore Lialah Gordon and Paul VI junior Shaelan McNally both finished the XC season with top-25 finishes Saturday at the Champs Northeast Regional XC Championships.
Gordon finished 20th in 19:16 and McNally 23rd in 19:22 over the challenging 5,000-meter course at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. The race draws from seven Northeastern States.
The top 10 finishers qualify for the Champs National Championships at Balboa Park in San Diego next month. This is the latest name for the Kinney / Foot Locker / Eastbay Regionals, all at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx.
Gordon’s 20th-place is the highest finish by a South Jersey girl since Alyssa Aldridge won the 2016 race.
