Catarina Rocha, the talented cross-country runner from Peabody High School and the Division 1 player of the year for the Boston Globe's All-Scholastics, finished in second place at the Foot Locker Cross-Country Nationals in San Diego Saturday.

Rocha had gone undefeated in Massachusetts, winning the Bay State Invitational, the Eastern Mass. Division 1 race, the Division 1 All-State meet, and then the Foot Locker Northeast Regional to propel herself to nationals. She finished Saturday's race in 17:29, two seconds off her best mark of the season and five seconds behind winner Anna Roher of Mishawaka, Ind.
