Dutchover gets first at Nike Cross Nationals

Yucaipa senior cross country runner Tyler Dutchover finished first place in the Men’s 5K Cross Country Open run at the Nike Cross Nationals this past Saturday in Portland, Ore.

Dutchover, who helped the Thunderbirds reach the CIF-State Meet for the first time in nearly a decade, ran the course in 16 minutes, 16.4 seconds — almost five seconds faster than the next closest competitor.
