UTC's Henderson To Run In Stanford Invitational

Thursday, April 03, 2014

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga cross country All-American Teghan Henderson is set to compete this weekend at the prestigious Stanford Invitational in hopes of earning an NCAA region qualifying time in the women’s 5000m.

The Pickering, Ontario sophomore has yet to run the 5K this season. She was all-conference in the Southern Conference Indoor Track Championships, placing third in the event after an official’s error caused runners to stop the race one lap shy before being rushed back onto the track. She also earned all-conference honors with a runner-up finish in the 3000 meter.

This season Henderson led off the women’s Distance Medley Relay team at the Alabama Relays where the Mocs placed second.

Henderson will be up against 128 runners from more than 60 collegiate and professional teams in the 5K. She will run the fifth of six heats Friday evening as she looks to run a qualifying time for the NCAA East Region meet.

Former Chattanooga distance runner and Southern Conference Female Athlete of the Year Lanni Marchant (London, Ontario) will be competing in the 10K at the Stanford Invitational. Marchant owns the Canadian Marathon record for women and will be looking to earn a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team for 2016.

Results will be available on GoMocs.com as they become available. Live scoring is available at the link on the track schedule page at GoMocs.com and a live video stream will be available for a fee at FloTrack.org. The link can be found on the track schedule page at GoMocs.com as well. The 5K is set to begin at 7:07 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Roy Exum: Two Wrongs Not Right

Scottie Mayfield is a delightful friend of mine but he’s the last guy in the world who should be aiming at anybody’s character. He’s always had class but today Scottie is the “star” of a shameful political commercial in which he assails challenger Weston Wamp on behalf of a panicked Chuck Fleischmann. Mayfield, you’ll remember, ran against the two in the last race for the District ... (click for more)
