NCAA Cross Country 2021 (20th Nov)

 

Cormac Dalton (Tulsa) is congratulated by Mullingar Club mate Jack O’Leary (Iona)

 

Superb NCAA debut for Cormac Dalton

The NCAA Cross Country Championship took place on Saturday morning 20th November at the Apalachee Regional Park cross country course in Tallahassee, Florida, where the men competed over 10,000m. The very large field of over 250 runners kept the pressure on right from the gun to make it a very fast race. Building on his brilliant recent form, in his first appearance at the NCAA Championships, Cormac Dalton really dug deep and had a fantastic race to finish very strongly in 29:28.5  to place an excellent 34th place, leading the Tulsa team home to 6th place out of 31 teams, and earning himself an All-American honour into the bargain. With the European Cross Country taking place in Dublin in December, this performance comes at the perfect time for Cormac and should put him in the frame for selection on the Irish senior men team.
