Foot Locker South and NXN Southeast - What Floridians will make Nationals?

Athletes from Florida have to make the tough choice on which path to follow between Foot Locker South and NXN Southeast.  For the most part, Floridians traditionally choose Foot Locker South.  With a bus on either coast packed with kids and dozens of others headed in vans, this year is no exception.  We will be very well represented in Charlotte.   Meanwhile, those finding themselves lucky enough to be on the very top teams are likely to choose the other path and hoping to earn a berth to Nike Cross Nationals.  Six Florida teams and a few individuals have decided to go that direction and things are looking pretty bright for sending some folks to Portland.  Here's a look at the full picture of who's likely to be extending their season further...



Foot Locker South




You can never take anything for granted at Foot Locker South.  You've got the best runners out of one fourth of the country going at it--minus a few who go to NXN instead--and you've got a fast course.  Everyone goes out in a mad dash with a blazing first mile and if you don't get a good start you might as well count yourself out (just ask Ashley Brasovan).  The top ten boys and top ten girls in the seeded race will get to advance to Foot Locker Nationals in San Diego.


So with all that said, four qualifying slots for Floridians seem pretty gift-wrapped:  Kathryn and Erika Fluehr (who qualified last year), Jimmy Clark, and Ryan Pickering.  Beyond that it's really just a question of who is on.  It takes a really special performance to break through and at this point I would say I don't expect anyone else from Florida to make it.  However, history tells us that usually there are a few surprises: Brittany Koziara, Shelby Hayes, and Michael Wallace over the past few years off the top of my head.  So who will it be to step up and grab a top ten??


Qualifying spots for boys are typically sub 15:10 and for girls sub 17:25.

NXN Southeast 


The top two boys and girls teams in the Championship race will get to advance to NXN Nationals in Portland.  Teams who place third or fourth will be considered for an at-large berth, but only four are awarded for the entire country out of nine regions.  Additionally, the top five individuals on non-qualifying teams will get to advance.


Florida is actually favored to send two boys teams through this year:  Trinity Prep and Columbus.  That would truly be an amazing feat.  And while on paper they are favored to go 1-2 its going to take far more than an average performance.  Both teams did extremely well at Great American, which bodes well for them.  And Trinity Prep is highly favored to win the regional championship, but they can be beat... and they were beat by Holy Trinity in Melbourne two weeks ago.  So they will have to be on top of it.  Columbus has peaked for and been staring at this NXN Southeast since day one and it almost cost them the state championship last week when they got a little ahead of themselves.  They will definitely be ready, but it will take a lot better than they showed at state to move on.  Del Valle is likely to win the individual title here and advance no matter what.  Charlotte and Pensacola Washington are also entered but have an outside shot at best.


On the girls side, things aren't favored to turn out so rosy.  Holy Trinity and Chiles are both entered and do have a chance, but it's going to take monster days from both.  Tatnall, Delaware is in a league of their own so basically one spot is already accounted for which leaves the rest of the field battling for that second place.


Vanessa Valentine is entered as an individual also and depending on how things play out, she could potentially grab one of those five slots... assuming she both has a big day and the team qualifications go her way.  Having either Holy Trinity or Chiles qualify would really help her since they will both likely have to of the individual positions in front of her.  Assuming Chiles and/or Holy Trinity do not qualify then it is very likely that Julie Wollrath, Lily Williams, Teresa Ristow, and/or Carly Thomas will advance.  Tyler Cardillo has a good chance at grabbing a plane ticket to Portland individually as well.  Nick Posada of Winter Park is also in the running for an individual berth.

    Sorry this preview isn't as elaborate as I usually do and I'm sure it's not very well written... but wanted to be sure to get something up to get the info out there and a bit of what to expect.

    Although at one point I thought we'd have more, I am finding it hard to think we'll have more than four advancing to Foot Locker Nationals (2 guys, 2 girls) but hopefully someone will prove me wrong and grab a slot. Clemente or Duncan may do it with the way they've been running and I'm impressed by Eduardo Garcia's strength. I think we'll see those guys in the top 20 but top 10 may be a stretch.

    I'd love to see Schappert redeem herself and get to go... and she's got big meet experience. We know her feet are ready. It's just kind of a matter of if her mind can carry her there. If anyone besides the Fluehrs gets it I think it's Kacy Smith because she is ferocious as she showed last week.

    The NXN picture should be pretty bright. Columbus and Trinity Prep hopefully will get their tickets, with Del Valle hopefully the individual champ. And besides that I think we'll have a number of individuals so that will be nice to see.

    Holy Trinity sending their boys to Charlotte and girls to Cary. Lily Williams is on the entry list of Foot Locker, but obviously is going to be with her team in Cary.

    I want to wish all our Florida runners the best of luck at Foot Locker South, and there is always a little luck involved. Remember, the goal is to get to San Diego, and to do that you need to focus on being one of the top ten runners in Charlotte. Run a smart race, and that begins with your postioning at the start. Stay away from the middle, where it is easy to get tripped, position yourself on the outer left away from the mass at the start...don't try to win the first mile, many will try and will die trying...there will be plenty of time for you to race and pick off people. And just keep picking them off. Try to move to the top 20 in the last mile. Then the last 400 yards is where you can make it happen...this is where you leave it all out on the course and place yourself in the top 10...make us all proud and then get ready for a great experience at the National competition in San Diego where Foot Locker treats all the runners like you are kings and queens...Kick Butt.
  • mattsdad / 4 Years Ago
    One more thing. Over the last three years of watching runners compete at this race, one of the most common problems I have seen runners experience is dehydration. Given that Florida runners have to travel by car and plane to Charlotte travel can impact your hydration, please, don't make the mistake of not drinking enough water today...Carry water with you throughout the day and make sure your body is ready to KICK BUTT tomorrow.

    Irigoyen gets no respect.State Champion in a dominating fashion and he's not even given any consideration to qualify?

    @sportzdude808 All the guys that Jason mentioned have broken 15:20 with the exception of maybe Garcia. Bert is a great runner, but he dominated a very weak 2A field. I think Bert will run around 15:30 which is still a fantastic time.
  • BConvey / 4 Years Ago

    Honestly, Jason predicted Bert would win 2A-- as did a few others :) I'm pretty sure there is no disrespect there at all.

    Depending on the course condition, I won't be surprised if it takes a sub 15 effort to qualify, and going out VERY HARD for the first mile is a requirement on that course. Its not easy to PR by 30 seconds in a race that goes out at a pace you aren't comfortable with.

    Found out charlotte canceled on nxn... cardillo individually at foot locker south. Unlikely but possibly in mix
  • mattsdad / 4 Years Ago
    BIG Congrats to Jimmy Clark for winning the Boy's race...he's joined in the top ten by Elliot Clemente #5 and Ryan Pickering #10 Great job guys...and Big Cngrats to Kathryn Fluehr #1, Erika Fluehr #2 and Shelby Davidson #10...Thank you for representing Florida...On to San Diego

    Tough choice? Let'see rain & cold in Portland vs. Warm & usually sunny San Diego
    Dew drop in hotle in Beaverton vs Hotel Del Coronado
    Oregon mud vs Imperial Beach
    Gong show in Oregon vs San Diego amenities
    no individual pic & cheap Nike program vs color pics on glossy paper
    Tigger (US serial wife-cheater) Woods Building vs an Historic hotel
    yea it a tough call?
    Well it is easier to qualify for Nikki

    Nike can keep their money,as for me and my house, We will continue to follow 32 years of Footlocker tradition. I will also take a shot at Hotel Del and sunny San Diego of rainy Portland. UNLESS, I felt I had 7 kids that had a legit shot at making it out together. As the Florida teams that ran Cary yesterday did. While none of us made it, Props to all for going after it. It was a very difficult year to get out.

    Footlocker South haad it's largest number of entries in 32 years and nearly all the top 15 boys and girls in the south were entered. Great news, see you in Charlotte next November.
