Menlo School senior Lizzie Lacy didn’t run to victory at the Foot Locker Cross Country National Championships on Saturday, but she did come away with at least a moral triumph at Balboa Park in San Diego. After finishing behind Caroline Pietrzyk of Malibu High at the CIF Division IV State Championships and at the Foot Locker West Regional, Lacy finally defeated her rival at nationals by clocking 18:01 over the 5,000-meter (3.1 mile) course. Pietrzyk, meanwhile, finished 14th in 18:08. Lacy was the No. 1 finisher from California while Pietrzyk was No. 2. The two were third and second, respectively, at the West Regional at Mt. SAC last weekend in Walnut as Makena Morley of Montana won the race. Morley finished third on Saturday in 17:29.

Lacy finished ahead of Stanford recruit Hannah Long of Eureka High in Pacific, Mo. She finished 19th in 18:20. Two other Stanford recruits did quite well in the boys' race as Grant Fisher of Grand Blanc High in Michigan defended his national title with a 15:03 clocking. Alex Ostberg of Darien High in Darien, Conn., was ninth in 15:22.
