In Her Own Words: Karen Xiang - The Foot Locker Experience Todd Grasley Dec 24, 2013

I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to participate in the 2013 Foot Locker Cross Country Championships, not only because it was like a vacation for a weekend in CALIFORNIA, but because I had the privilege to race the best high school runners in the country and make friendships that will last forever. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all the people who put so much work into making this an unforgettable experience for all of us!

UPenn's Strong Academics & Athletics Seal The Deal For Xiang Todd Grasley Nov 18, 2013

She says it is at that point her recruiting took off.
