MacDonald Named to Canada's Pan American Junior Cross Country Team

Dec. 6, 2017

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University freshman cross country standout Martha MacDonald (Toronto, Ont./Havergal College) was named to Canada's 2018 Pan American Cross Country Team. She earned one of six spots available for the junior women's team last month when she finished fourth overall at the Canadian National Cross Country Championships. MacDonald will represent Canada at the 2018 Pan American Cross Country Cup in San Salvador, El Salvador with the junior women's competition scheduled for February 17, 2018.

MacDonald recorded a time of 21:22.5 over the 6-kilometer course in Kingston, Ontario to place fourth at the Canadian championships.

"Martha ran a tough race up in Kingston in less than ideal conditions to reach the last goal of her long cross country season and qualify for the Pan Am team representing Canada in El Salvador," Director of Track & Field / Cross Country Julie Culley said. "What Martha accomplished this season was a great start to her career at Georgetown and beyond. We are proud to have yet another Hoya represent their home country on the international stage."

To close out the collegiate season, MacDonald, in her first year at Georgetown, qualified for the 2017 NCAA Cross Country Championships, where she finished 168th overall. She clocked 21:14.2 over the 6-kilometer affair and was the 16th finisher among those in their freshman year of eligibility.
