I love hearing about all this alumni news, it gives me great joy to see Chap alums running so well in college!
This weekend was the Mountain West Championships, and Alex Balsiger competed for Colorado State. He ran a 26:34, good for 6th on the team (he is usually 7th or 8th) and 32nd overall. He went through the 5 km mark in 16:02, which beats his HS 5 k PR by one or two seconds! Not bad, for an 8 km race!
Percentage wise, it was a tight race, as Alex was only 5.5% back of the leaders, who were in the low 25's.
Great job Alex, that's an awesome performance!
