Akis Medrano Competes In NCAA Nationals


ISU Senior Akis Medrano competed in the NCAA Cross Country Nationals in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday.  The senior finished in a time of 31:30.6 which was good for 191st place out of 255.  “Being here at this National Championship meet, I just have so many emotions coming through, Medrano said. “I’m so excited being here, between the atmosphere, the competition, the people that came here and the way everything was setup, it felt great being here. What I take overall is just that this was a wonderful experience and it’s going to help me push my limits in indoor and outdoor track. I’d call it a good day in the office for a first national race, and I’m just going to carry that experience with me.”  The Cross Country Championships return to Terre Haute next year at Lavern Gibson Championship Course.
