Trevor Carson’s November 20, 2019 Signing Ceremony for Duquesne University for Track and Field,
RESULTS from AAU and USATF Cross Country Championships, November 16, 2019
Congratulations on a great race! All the athletes did an amazing job, their hard work this season really showed out on the course today. If anyone is interested in additional cross country racing this season, there are a couple of travel options that everyone who competed November 16 is eligible for. First, the AAU National Championship cross country meet is Saturday, December 7th in Knoxville, TN. Another option is the USATF National Championship on Saturday, Dec 14th in Madison, WI.
If you are interested in entering one or both of the above meets, please let Katherine Kapo or Coach Ferrell know within the next week or so. Some are considering the TN race since it is not too far away, so it could be fun to have a group of Striders at that race if anyone else is interested.
