Julie Macedo can't finish soon enough to savor the sweet taste of victory!
Julie Macedo held back until about 800 meters to and was able to pull away from Haley Pierce inspite of Haley running her fastest time of the year and fastest on the NXN SE course at the WakeMed Soccer Complex. Julie's time was a meet record and Haley's was #2 All-Time for the NXN SE Regional Meet! The girls course record is 16:40 set by Aisling Cuffe last year at the Great American Cross Country Festival.

The Midlothian girls received word this morning that they had been selected as one of the four at-large team selections for next weekend's Nike Cross Nationals. This will be the second trip to Portland, Oregon for the Midlothian girls' program after qualifying last in 2006. The Midlothian boys have qualified twice for NXN in 2006 and 2010. Midlothian was eligible for at-large consideration after finishing third at yesterday's Southeast Regional in Cary, North Carolina and only three points behind the second place automatic qualifier. The Midlothian girls should be suited well to be competitive in the national race with a strong front four of All-State caliber runners in Kara Dickerson, Skylar Evans, Marie Johnston, and Kari Johnston. Dickerson had already qualified individually for Nike Cross Nationals with a fifth place personal best run of 18:08 at the Southeast Regional. Under the guidance of longtime coach Stan Morgan, Midlothian has won six of the last seven Group AAA state cross country team titles.
