    This past weekend, Tyler Byrne got to participate in one of the ultimate races in cross country on a National scale at the 6th Annual Nike Nationals held in Portland, Oregon. These elite participants from across the Nation consisted of 199 individual runners and 22 teams coming to Oregon by racing earlier in November from the 8 Qualifying Nike Regionals.  On Saturday December 5th, Tyler represented North Harrison and Southern Indiana in great fashion by finishing in 19th place overall in this highly competitive field with a time of 15:37. Tyler ran a 5:01 mile pace even with the challenging obstacles of Nike’s whoop-dee-doos and hay bales on a cold and foggy morning on the Portland Meadows 5K Course.
    But Tyler’s season is not over yet. Tyler is off again this coming weekend, to compete at the 31st Annual Foot Locker National Championships held in San Diego, California. Tyler is the only Indiana runner who qualified for both post season National Races.
