Ward places 5th at US Championships

Rachel Ward took to the track to compete in the 10,000m at the US Track and Field Championships held in Sacramento, California. With heavy favorite, Shalane Flanagan, scratching the day of the race, the pace early on lagged as no one wanted to lead. Ward took to the front to keep the tempo respectable for the rest of the field. Once the pace picked up, Ward hung on as the top six women separated from the rest of the field. Ward finished as strong as she started, running 32:49.45 for fifth place. The race was another step in the right direction for Rachel in terms of development and experience in championship-style races. Results can be found below.
