The Southern Regional Championships for the Foot Locker Cross Country series was won by Ryen Frazier and Andrew Hunter today. This was the third of four FootLocker regionals, with the fourth held in California on December 6, 2014. 

The Foot Locker Championships, now in its 36th year, will be held on December 13, 2014, in nearly bucolic conditions, we hope, on a challenging course at Balboa Park in San Diego, California!
