Young Truckee runners compete at Junior Nationals

Four students from Truckee's Alder Creek Middle School traveled to New Mexico on Dec. 8 to compete in the USA Track and Field Junior Olympic National Cross Country Running Championships.

The four young athletes, Claire Lang-Ree, Carrie Bradley, Jordy Guldman and Dylan Thomas, reached the National Championship races based on their times in divisional and sectional qualifying races in November in Folsom.

Truckee High track coach Diana Yale helped the racers with vital training sessions and race strategy tips during their post season advancement. They joined 3,000 other runners from all 50 states in 3-kilometer and 4-kilometer races at Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque.
