Karis Jochen
Overall feelings about the race: I was very excited with how I finished. This is the best field in the country and getting the opportunity to race against the best is an amazing opportunity.
Best part of the race:  The best part of my race was crossing the finish line and sharing the experience with my parents.
The FLCC Experience:  My Foot Locker experience was incredible. The south girls hung out the entire weekend and truly became a team during the race. I made relationships with some of these girls this weekend that will last a lifetime.

Personal note:  Thank you so much for supporting me my entire High School cross country career. As a freshman, I could never have imagined that I would be at this point four years later, but I could not have had any of this success without the support, love, and confidence that my friends and family have shown me. Thank you for always believing in me more than I believe in myself! I love you all so much!
