Schick places 3rd @ USATF JO Nationals in snowy Reno Dec 16, 2009

When the bid was given to Reno, Nevada to host the 2009 USATF National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships, a snowtorm was certainly not the expected race day weather conditions. Snow flakes in the air and a white powder covering the course is exactly what a contingent of Maggie Walker runners led by their All-State runner Clarissa Schick experienced during their races this past weekend. Schick earned All-American honors once again in a USATF championship meet after achieving the distinction last December when the meet was held at Pole Green Park. Schick (pictured by Margie Swart) placed third in the young women's division 5K with a time of 19:23. Also earning All-American honors from Maggie Walker were Marc Breidenbaugh in the intermediate boys division (19th, 16:51) and Caroline Newcomb in the young women division (19th, 20:20).
