Cross-Country Hits Milestone at Nationals

November 13, 2012

Florida College Cross-country took its largest stride as the program’s most successful women’s team placed 8th out of 17 at the USCAA Nationals in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The men’s squad was hindered as Bryan Garcia, a former USCAA Runner of the Week and current holder of the Florida College men’s record, was sidelined due to an injury. The women’s team were more successful, and were led by Karen Hunsicker and Melissa Cowley. Hunsicker placed 8th out of 144 with a 6K time of 25:33, becoming the first women of Florida College to achieve All-American status. Melissa Cowley finished 49th.

We congratulate Florida College cross-country on a successful season and look forward to another run at Nationals next year.
