WALNUT -- Stockdale senior Blake Haney finished sixth in the prestigious boys individual sweepstakes race at the Mt. SAC Invitational on Saturday, the first time he's been defeated in 2013.
Haney, ranked the No. 1 high school cross country runner in the nation by multiple running websites, ran the 5-kilometer race in 15:01, similar to his time in winning the Clovis Invitational two weeks ago. But it was well off the pace set by Torrey Pines senior Tal Braude, who won the race in 14:27, just three seconds off the course record.
