    Way to go Rich Nelson and BYU! They have awesome track and field athletes at BYU, and Rich is one of them. He is also captain of the cross country team there. Kudo's to KKCO for reporting these results.

    I watched both of these runners at the Stanford Invite. Both are exceptional runners adding to BYU's strong team. Glad to see that they both honors at Nationals.
