#10 - American Fork cross-country enjoys banner season Next » 1 of 10 « Prev

American Fork's boys turned in the best season in state history for any cross country team — ever.

It started with a third straight 5A state championship in October, but the highlight was a second-place finish at the Nike Cross Country Nationals in Portland on Dec. 1.

It was the best finish for a Utah team ever, surpassing the third-place finish by Davis High last year.

American Fork finished just 14 points behind eventual national champion Arcadia High out of California.

Brayden McLelland finished eighth for the top finish by the Cavemen, followed by Connor McMillan (19th), Zac Jackson (38th), Caleb Thompson (72nd) and Tyson Green (78th).
