FLCC to host national XC championship

by WayneTimes.com
November 1, 2014

Finger Lakes Community College will host a national cross country championship Nov. 8 that will draw hundreds of runners from over 30 colleges across the nation. The National Junior College Athletic Association Division III Cross Country National Championships will also feature a visit by one of the nation’s top distance runners, Melissa White.

White, formerly of Naples, will be the keynote speaker at a banquet for the runners and coaches on Friday, Nov. 7, at the college’s main campus, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive. She was a seven-time All-American at SUNY Geneseo and placed 9th in the recent Bank of America Chicago Marathon, covering 26.2 miles in 2:34:19. The competitions will be held on FLCC’s trail system on Saturday, Nov. 8. The women’s 5K begins at 10 a.m., while the men start their 8K race at 11 a.m. An awards ceremony will follow at approximately 12:30 p.m. in the gymnasium. Saturday’s events are free and open to spectators. FLCC men’s and women’s cross country teams, coached by Scott Williams, will participate in the competitions.

FLCC’s Bruce Bridgman Cross Country courses were developed in 1985, and redesigned seven years later to host the national championships. The course was redesigned again this year for the upcoming event.

“Competing in a national championship event is an opportunity very few student athletes are able to experience,” said Robert Lowden, athletic director at FLCC. “We welcome all the runners and coaches to our campus and hope they enjoy the competition and our courses.” Lowden will emcee Friday’s banquet where White will offer remarks. White is the daughter of FLCC alumnus Lew White, who was an NJCC All-Academic cross country runner. While the banquet is closed to the public, it will be broadcast live on the Athletics Department’s web page at www.flccathletics.com/njcaaxc. Plans are also in the works to broadcast the awards banquet.
