#XCBEAST Boys from this Past States Weekend

Matthew Maton (Summit, OR) beat the Oregon State Meet Record of one of the best American distant runners of all-time, Galen Rupp. Maton ran 14:45, the second fastest time this season, as he led his US #9 Summit boys to the 5A Oregon State Title.

Immediately after each weekend of meets for the rest of this cross country season, MileSplit will be selecting a 14 boys and 14 girls nationally who truly had a BEAST race in their cross country meets over the past.

What defines an #XCBEAST? A #XCBeast performance can be seen by an elite cross country runner blowing out a field, shattering a course/meet record, defeating a fierce rival, leading their team to victory, performing in the clutch or pulling out a win in dramatic fashion, and many more ways to standout with jaw-dropping times and win.

These 14 XC boys went into "beast mode" with their race performances this past week (10/27 through 11/3). Click next to proceed.
