Zak Seddon Impressed in Week 3 XC Action

NCAA XC – Week 3 Round-up


As the NCAA XC season begins to hot up ahead of upcoming Invitational races, the bigger schools started to show their hand. FSU gave Zak Seddon his NCAA debut and he duly obliged recording a fine victory at the Virginia Tech Invitational.

Elsewhere, Ireland and Providence’s Shane Quinn continued his good form from last season in taking the Stony Brook Invitational, with Derby AC athlete Ben Connor back in 17th.

Gina Paletta engineered a transfer from DII Concordia to nearby Portland Pilots in the fall, and she came 6th in her first race for the Oregonians.

Meanwhile Alex Bruce-Littlewood was the best of the British bunch at the Rice Invitational at Texas where home-from-home Lamar met neighbours McNeese State. Chris Smith is now assisting the head coach/being race photography guru as he is out of eligibility.

Tulsa’s Chris O’Hare and Andy Heyes ran part of the Missouri Southern Stampede in atrocious conditions with surface water rendering the meet more aquatic than athletic (pictured right). Tulsa usually blood their main runners in slowly during the first few races by giving them the opportunity to run hard at the front of the pack without the pressure of holding on for a win. Freshman recruit Marc Scott did finish, and in fifth position.

Other wins: UAB’s Sarah Hudak prolonged her win streak to 3 weeks, Rich Peters made his 2012 XC debut with a solid 25:07 clocking in Durham NH, while Kate Avery donned the yellow of Iona in their home meet and took the win over the 6K course.

Thinks will be begin to hot up now as teams will look to gear up for the main Invitational races, so expect to see these XC times drop considerably. (Yes, there are such things as XC PBs in the States).

The road to Louisville begins here.
