Congratulations to Erin Nehus '03, Sergio Reyes '03, and Jason Scott '07 for competing at the 2010 USA Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa in June. Erin placed in the top 10 for the women's 10K, Sergio placed 12th in the men's 10K, and Jason placed in the top 15 for the men's pole vault.
Prior to the competition, Jason's local newspaper in Hannibal, Missouri, ran a story about his involvement in this competition. Jason shared, "The number one reason I’m going is that God has given me the ability and I just want to go there and honor Him with what He has given me. For everything He’s done for me, I try to give a little bit back.”
