Desert Vista junior Dani Jones continued to show she can compete with the nation’s best on Saturday with her performance at the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland.

Jones, who won the Arizona Division I cross country title three weeks ago, finished 15th at the sport’s marquee national event with a time of 17 minutes and 55.6 seconds on the 3.1-mile course at Portland Meadows Race Track. Her finish was the best placing for an Arizona girl in the 10 years of the event.

It’s the latest accomplishment for Jones as she finished as a runner-up in the 3,200-meter run and won the 800- and 1,600-meter runs at the state track meet in the spring.
