Harrison Scudamore Qualifies for High School Nationals

On Saturday, November 25, East senior Harrison Scudamore raced to a 7th place finish at the Midwest Footlocker Championship in Kenosha, Wisconsin. His 15:08 finish earned him one of 10 spots from the region of thirteen Midwest states to qualify for the 39th Footlocker Cross Country Championships in San Diego, California on December 9. Harrison will be one of only forty boys nationwide and the only Colorado athlete to compete in the championship race this year. Harrison moved up from 15th place at the one mile mark to 11th at the two mile mark, and finally kicked to a 7th place finish in an extremely close battle as places 3rd through 10th were separated by only three seconds.

One week prior, Scudamore competed in the Nike National Cross Country Southwest Regional Championship in Casa Grande, Arizona. Under balmy conditions in the desert, Harrison ran to a 7th place finish against the best runners from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. Over the flat, fast 5K course he ran to personal record of 15:05.9 and just one place shy of qualifying for that championship race.
