Goethals nips Sveinsson at the finish. Verzbicas makes history!

Meghan Goethals and Chelsey Sveinsson provided one of the most exciting finishes in the history of the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships as Sveinsson took an aggressive lead with 600m to go, only to have Goethals close the 5 second gap in the final 150m. Lukas Verzbicas made history by becoming the first sophomore boy to win the historic championship in an aggressive runaway win.
