Weekend Recap (February 2): USATF XC Championships

Our active duty military crew was in action on Saturday, February 2nd, at the USATF XC Championships in Tallahassee, Florida. Lucas Stalnaker finished an outstanding 20th place in a loaded field, and came agonizingly close to making his first national team, missing out on qualifying for the NACAC XC squad by one spot. That disappointment does not diminish Lucas's great race--he ran 30:13 for 10,000 on a fairly hilly course, and he beat numerous national class athletes. Lucas will keep the momentum going into track season, and he's got a real shot to qualify for outdoor nationals in the 10,000. Well done, young fellow!

The rest of our crew also ran well. Sean Barrett was a strong 49th place in 33:45, and Ryan Spier, who is beginning to work his way back into shape, was 57th place in 34:49. On the women's side, Kelly Calway was a solid 45th place in 39:00.
