Girls' cross country: Another national title for Simi Valley's Sarah Baxter

December 1, 2012 | 10:33 am

The remarkable cross country season for Simi Valley's Sarah Baxter continued on Saturday, when she won her second consecutive national title in capturing the Nike Cross Nationals in 19:17 in Oregon.

Earlier this year, she set a course record in winning her third consecutive state championship in Fresno and set a course record in winning at Mt. San Antonio College.

Baxter is only a junior and has never lost a high school race.

Arcadia won the boys' title.

For the record: An earlier version of this post had the wrong winning time of 15:22.80 for Sarah Baxter. Her winning time was 19:17.
