Three team members finish in the top 16
Congratulations to our B.A.A. women, who took home the USA 10K Team Championship title today at the Tufts 10K in Boston! Katie Matthews placed tenth in 33:09, followed by Sarah Pagano (15th, 33:42), and Emma Bates (16th, 33:54). This was Emma’s debut with the club and her first race as a pro. Combined, the team tallied a score of 1:40:45 to beat adidas Rocky Mountain Elite by six seconds. It is the second year in a row the B.A.A. has won the title!
“This year we had two different girls run this race and we still won,” said Matthews, noting that a year ago fellow High Performance members Jen Rhines and Juliet Bottorff were part of the winning squad. “I think it speaks to our depth and that we can have three girls ready to go at any given time ready to win.”
