USATF Club XC Nationals Preview
Next Saturday, 9 members of PRTC are heading to Tallahassee, Florida to take on USATF Club XC Nationals.
For the first time in MANY years, PRTC will be sending a women’s team to the national meet. Led by Margaret Vido, Sam Roecker, Meghan Bishop, Kylie Pearse, Jamie Morgenstern and Ashton Hughes PRTC looks poised to place well and make a successful return to national club-level competition.
Meanwhile, Mike Vido and Kevin Brandon will represent the men and also debut new singlets! While we are disappointed not to field a full men’s team, it will be fun to race, explore Tallahassee and support the women. Charlie Murphy is slated to make the trip and provide coaching / support as well.
