Wayzata Boys 11th, Hussein 10th at NXN

By Eric Jahn
There was no recall when multiple runners went down in the first few seconds of the boy’s race at Glendoveer Golf Course in Portland.  Four of the Wayzata athletes were taken out, and two of their scorers were dead last before they knew it in the field of 199.  The only one with an unencumbered start was Khalid Hussein, who used perfect positioning and steady progression to end up tenth in 15:28.
Aidan Troutner from the Southwest Region was the individual champion in 15:03, nipping Brody Hasty for the title.  Louden Valley (VA) easily won the team title with 89 points over Manlius (NY) with 159.
The first unattached individual from Minnesota was Acer Iverson of Roseville who ended up 61st in 16:16.

It’s starting to sprinkle again as the girl’s race is set to start in 20 minutes.  Many of the corners of the course are severely chewed up at this point, and will soon get worse.
