At the boys high-school Eastbay Cross Country Championships in San Diego, York-town Patriots senior Owen McArdle placed 28th in 15:54 in the field of 40 runners. The winning time was 15:11.

“I was disappointed I didn’t finish better, because I didn’t push myself enough,” said McArdle, the 2021 Virginia High School League Class 6 boys state champion, who will run in college at the University of Virginia. “I kind of relaxed a little bit. I think I could have gotten into the top 20. I went out too conservatively and I was never in a position to strike.”

McArdle won multiple high-school races during the fall. In addition to being state champion, he won the 6D North Region meet and the Arlington County championship for two of his other victories.
