For the first time, the Foot Locker Cross Country Northeast Regional will be held someplace other than historic Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, meet director Phil Zodda announced yesterday. The qualifier for the Foot Locker National will still take place on Nov. 28 but instead will be held at Sunken Meadow State Park in Kings Park, the site of last year’s New York State Public Schools Championships.
The first of the two national high school cross country championship races were held this past weekend in Portland, Oregon with the Nike Cross Nationals. The boys' race certainly featured many of the nation's best battling it out to the wire, while the girls' race was missing the unofficial "Big 3" in Megan Goethals (MI), Chelsey Sveinsson (TX), and Aisling Cuffe (NY) but stellar depth was found in both races as Foot Locker finalists, All-Americans, and state champions were found deep into the field.

KINGS PARK, New York -- Aisling Cuffe continued her season of domination on Saturday at the Foot Locker Northeast Regional with a performance that surprised even herself. Facing relentless gusts of wind that reached speeds of 50 miles per hour and put Suffolk County on severe weather alert, Cuffe became the first girl in Sunken Meadow Park history to break 18 minutes.
Foot Locker announced today, that Saucony, Inc., has become the official sponsor for the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships (FLCCC), the nation’s premier high school championships for cross country runners.
