Priot to Hartnell: Competed in three seasons of cross country for the Eagles of Alvarez High School. His best finish at the league championship was 14th overall as a junior at the MBL Championship. Frankie has two years of CCS Championship experience in cross country. On the track, Frankie started off as a 300mIH but quickly moved to the middle distances. He was a PCAL finalist in both the 1600 and 3200 meters where he ran a lifetime best for the longer distance. 

"All our Eagles have gone on to become big surprises for us and I know the same will happen for Frankie. I love how smooth he looks at full flight and he's really benefited from having a big group of guys to train with the for the first time this summer. Frankie is a late bloomer in cross country and he should easily extend his ability to four miles quickly. If he continues to train healthy, he will contend for one of the top seven spots for the Norcal Championship in November."
