Edmonds Places Sixth at USATF Junior Cross Country Championships, Qualifies for World Championships
Edmonds (Cooperstown, N.Y.) traversed the 8K course in 26:24, claiming the final qualifying spot. Minnesota high school senior, Elliot Heath will lead the American delegation to the March 24 event after winning on Saturday in a time of 26:07.
Edmonds' qualification marks the third-straight year a Liberty men's cross country runner hailing from the Empire State will wear a United States singlet in the world championships. Josh McDougal (Jr., Peru, N.Y.) was a part of the U.S. senior men's team in 2005, and younger brother Jordan McDougal (So., Peru, N.Y.) advanced to last year's world championships in Japan as a member of the U.S. junior men's squad.
