Spokane well represented on US World XC team

USATF posted the roster for the US World XC team, competing in Poland in March. Unfortunately, no Ritz once again, but several big names are choosing to represent America including national champion Chris Derrick.

There are three high schoolers that made the junior squads (Erin Finn of Michigan, as well as Katie Knight and Andrew Gardner of Spokane). There is also another Spokanite on the roster, coach Patty Ley (former Gig Harbor HS coach from 1999-2009, current assistant at Gonzaga) is the head Senior Womens coach.

Quick update

Just a quick update, but I'm about ready to start posting standards for the 2013 XC rankings... track standards I already feel good about, but still need to finish reviewing most of the nation's championship cross country meets, so I'll probably be releasing those gradually (region-by-region).

In Northwest track news, great race by North Central's Tanner Anderson a few weeks ago to put himself at US#1 for 3k and possibly a Washington sophomore record and probably top 10-15 All-Time for Washington (indoors). I'll see about posting some more regarding Washington athletes after the Brooks PR meet this weekend. Lots of Washingtonians in that elite event!!
