At the 2022 MileSplit TX XC Invitational, both Bentonville (AR) junior James American Horse and Wolfe City junior Caden Thurman ran excellent races. Things got very interesting over the final 1K and even more so the last 400m.
As the two harriers approached the finish line, they looked at each other, crossed the line, and then looked at the clock to see who won. What they saw was a .10 second separation in one of the closest cross country races ever.
