EUGENE, Ore. – GaleRupp won the men’s 10,000 meters at the USATF national championships Thursday night, before adoring hometown fans here at the University of Oregon. It came just two weeks after he won both the 5k and 10k for the Oregon Ducks in their vain attempt to win the NCAA team championship in Arkansas.
Fawn Dorr's dream is starting to come true. As a high school cross country and track runner in the Western New York town of Akron, Fawn had a goal of becoming a top NCAA Division I athlete. After a year at SUNY Cortland, where she was the DIII National Champion at 400m hurdles, she found herself at Penn State.
Fawn Dorr is a graduate of Akron HS in Western, NY and a former NCAA DIII Champ at Cortlant in the 400m hurdles. Dorr transfered to Penn State and talks with Tim Fulton of ArmoryTrack.com while she was at the USATF Championships.
