Bernal is another guy who's run some impressive times on the track including a 4:18 1600m and 9:01 3200m. The El Paso Eastwood senior's fastest time on the XC course last year was 15:00 which he ran to win the Desert Twilight XC Festival. He didn't have a great state meet, but he bounced back at NXN South placing 5th and qualifying for Nike Cross Nationals. Bernal also dropped 27 seconds off of his 3200m running 9:01 at the state meet to finish 3rd. He's a serious threat to win every time he steps on the cross country course.
