Ethan Strand was the lone Alabama athlete to qualify for Footlocker Nationals this year.  In fact he is the first Alabamian to qualify since McGill-Toolen's Carmen Carlos in 2012.  He is the first boy since Hoover's Robert Bedsole in 2004.

Strand finished in sixth place running 15:07 at Footlocker South in North Carolina on November 30th.  A few weeks before FL South he successfully defended his 7A State Championship running 15:18.
