PORTLAND - The rain and mud at Glendoveer Golf Course made the conditions for the 5,000-meter course one of significant challenge, but only heightened the memories for Aiden Troutner and Katelyn Tuohy Saturday.

Troutner pulled away late for a win in the boys race, while Touhy dominated the girls race from the start to highlight the annual Nike Cross Nationals.

Troutner, who finished in 15:03, won by two seconds and became the third consecutive winner from Utah.

Tuohy, from New York, set a course record of 16:45, breaking the previous mark by 11 seconds.
