WASHINGTON - Two current Georgetown University cross country runners and one former GU All-American competed at the USA Cross Country Championships, which were held in St. Louis on Saturday, February 2, 2013.

Darren Fahy (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) participated in the junior boys' 8,000-meter run, and placed fourth in a field of 72. He finished with a time of 24:51.90, which was .3 seconds faster than his closest competitor. Craig Nowak of Oklahoma State University came in first place with a 24:47.00 mark.

Samantha Nadel (Glen Head, N.Y./North Shore) competed in the junior girls' 6,000-meter run, and recorded a fifth-place finish among 55 runners. She recorded a 21:10.30 mark, one second faster than the sixth-place finisher. Emily Stites placed first in the competition with a time of 20:27.30.

Former Hoya and 10-time All-American Emily Infeld, now competing as part of the Nike team, raced in the women's 8,000-meter run and recorded a fourth-place finish against 84 other runners. Her time was 26:47.70, 6.50 seconds ahead of the fifth-place finisher. Her Nike teammate Shalane Flanagan came in first place with a 25:49.00 mark.
