Hannah DeBalsi 2nd At National Cross Country Championships

Hannah DeBalsi — Staples’ sweet-looking, but super-fast and ultra-competitive runner — placed 2nd this morning, at the Foot Locker Cross Country National Championships at Balboa Park in San Diego.

Hannah’s time of 17:26 makes her the fastest sophomore in the nation. At the finish line she trailed only Tessa Barrett, a senior from Waverly, Pennsylvania.

Congratulations, Hannah! And if you’re smart, you’ll stay out in California for a few days. It’s a lot easier to run on their beaches than ours this weekend.
