WATCH: Sam Affolder, Loudoun Valley Roll In Fast 1600m

Less than a week removed from their second straight Nike Cross Nationals title in Portland, Oregon, the Loudoun Valley boys arrived at the Real Deal High School Indoor Classic in Hampton, Virginia, on Saturday hoping to put down a few more fast times on the legs of cross country season. 

That was no more evident than in the 1600m, where a sea of pink jerseys--Loudoun Valley wore its 'The Jungle' Club uniform--dominated in the race. 

The team's top five runners all finished within the first six places, with senior Sam Affolder scoring a meet record in 4:13.22. Seniors Jacob Hunter and Connor Wells both run under 4:20. 

Loudoun Valley coach Joan Hunter confirmed after the meet that the Vikings were trying to see what their aerobic strength could yield them before an extending period of rest following the cross country season.
