Affolder, of course, transferred from Carlisle to Loudoun Valley in the summer. His father is in the Army and the family frequently changes locations. He was with Carthage (NY) High as a freshman. On Saturday at Nike Cross Nationals, Affolder placed 23rd overall in the boys' race in Portland, helping his new team to a national title.
The Loudoun Valley squad started its title run in early September in PA, when it opened up with a convincing win at PTXC9 in Kutztown. Check out an interview with the full LV team, including Affolder, above and check out other NXN meet links below:
