Neale, Bianchini finish top 10 in national races

Glacier Peak’s Amy Eloise-Neale finished eighth at Saturday’s Nike National Cross Country championship (NXN) at Portland Meadows horse racing track in Portland, Ore.

Neale finished the five kilometer race in 19 minutes, 45 seconds, 28 seconds behind the first place finisher Sarah Baxter (19:17) of Simi Valley High School in California.

Mary Cain (Bronxville H.S., New York) was second with a time of 19:21, followed by North Central’s Katie Knight, who has ran against Neale in the Washington 3A state tournament each of the last four years.

Knight and Neale will both run for the University of Washington next season.

Neale, a three-time 3A state champion, had previously finished 14th, 3rd and 5th in her prior NXN races.
