Derrick Silva and Xander Black

(1st and 2nd - Junior Olympic XC Nationals 11-12 Boys Div.)

The 11-12 boys 3k was one of the closest races of the day, with the trio of Xander Black, Derrick Silva and Maxwell Wilson breaking away from the pack early. Wilson led for much of the race before Black kicked to the front in the last kilometer. On the final straightaway, Silva made his move in front of Black and the two broke away with Silva just edging Black, 9:36.68-9:37.04. Wilson maintained his position and held off the chase pack, finishing third in 9:52.50.
