Glacier Peak freshman Amy-Eloise Neale wins BorderClash

After winning a state cross country title earlier this month, Amy-Eloise Neale went a step further: She won a prestigious all-star race that featured the top runners from Washington and Oregon.

Neale, a freshman at Glacier Peak High School, won the 2009 BorderClash event on Sunday on the Nike World Campus in Beaverton, Ore. She completed the 4,400-meter course in 16 minutes, 37.1 seconds, holding off Oregon's Annamarie Maag (16:38.23) in a sprint finish. Maag is an Oregon state champion.

BorderClash features the top 40 boys and top 40 girls from each state. Neale is the first freshman to ever win the girls event, according to Glacier Peak assistant cross country coach Frank Dauncey.

Neale helped the Washington girls earn a decisive team victory (19-44) over Oregon. Stanwood's Minna Fields placed seventh in 17:04.6.

The Washington boys earned a sweep over Oregon (15-50) in their race. Individual winner Shane Moskowitz of Central Kitsap finished in 14:06.29.

Here is a video of the girls race. You can find other 2009 BorderClash videos here.
