LA ROCHE COLLEGE RUNNERS PARTICIPATE IN CROSS COUNTRY RACE


8/3/2010

Pittsburgh, August 3, 2010 – Three La Roche College representatives took to the hills in the New Castle, Pa., “Run with the Buffalo” summertime 5k (3.1 miles) cross country race on July 10. La Roche’s cross country standout Jeff Dailey placed fourth overall out of 60 total runners. Dailey, a Johnstown, Pa., native who will enter his junior year at La Roche, maintained a speedy pace through the winding, twisting course along narrow trails in the New Castle backcountry. He finished with an impressive time of 19:22 and remained far in front of the main body of runners.

Other La Roche runners who participated in the race were Cross Country Coach Joshua Forrest of Mt. Lebanon, Pa., and Cross Country Assistant Coach Maureen Merolillo of McCandless Township, Pa. Forrest finished in 22nd place overall. This firmly entrenched him in second place in the men’s 50-54 age group. His time for the race was 24:57.

Merolillo finished 53rd overall and had a sensational final ranking of first in her age group. Her time for the race was 31:45.

The La Roche runners used this race as a way of staying fit during the summer and, according to Forrest, participating in this run helps to promote the cross country program at La Roche College.
