Fairfield Prep senior Drew Thompson earned All-American honors on Saturday in San Diego, California at the Foot Locker Nationals with his 8th place effort of 15:43. Thompson improved a remarkable 28 places from last year's Foot Locker Nationals appearance when he finished 35th with a time of 15:53.
Thompson's finish is one of the best boys finishes in recent state history at the Foot Locker Nationals. A strong turn around race as well for the Connecticut State Open champ and New England Championship winner after finishing 7th at the Foot Locker Northeast Regional two weeks ago.
On the girls side, two time State Open Champion Morgan McCormick of Wilton finished 17th in the race with a time of 18:22. This was McCormick's first trip to San Diego and Wilton's first national qualifier.
