Edmonds Finishes As Top American, Fourth Overall At NACAC Cross Country Championships
Edmonds (Cooperstown, N.Y.), finished fourth out of 30 competitors at the event in a time of 19:31. He crossed the line two seconds ahead of Elliott Heath, the U.S. junior cross country national champion.
Edmonds and Heath led the United States team to a second-place finish. The Americans' 27 points left them five points behind team champion Canada.
Canada featured the second and third-place finishers, but everyone was left chasing Mexico's Diego Borrego, a 16-year-old who won the race in a time of 18:50.
The NACAC Championships served as a tune-up for the March 24 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Mombasa, Kenya. Edmonds will represent the United States in the junior men's race at the meet.
