Boys Varsity Cross Country · NPX Boy’s Cross Country finish 6th at State, Richie Johnston wins Individual State Title


Our North Phoenix Prep Boy’s Cross Country team competed in the AIA Division 4 State Meet today at Crossroads Park in Gilbert, AZ, placing 6th overall.  It was a tremendous team effort led by Richie and Sam Johnston.  Richie won the individual state title coming in at 16:03 for the 5k (Personal Record), while Sam was just behind him with a 3rd place finish.  Jonah Pearson placed 35th, Kaden Duryea 65th in 20:05 (PR), Gage Kloft 89th in 21:48 (PR), Troy Holderby 91st, and Thomas Rotchford in 22:15 (Season Record).  This was an impressive showing for a team with four freshmen on the Varsity squad.  It was also the 3rd straight season coming away with the individual state title (Jordan Black ’18 & ’19) and 4th straight year as a Top 10 team in the division.
