LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Entering the final race of his career, senior Anthony Butler (Lincoln Park, Mich./Roosevelt) will look to end his record-setting season on top of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). Last season, Butler finished 29th overall out of over 100 participants in the midst of snowy conditions.
This season, Butler has shaved just over three minutes off of his time posted at the 2011 USCAA event. The senior's 8K time of 27:44 earlier this season was a personal/school best.
Equally as impressive, Butler's record time places him sixth nationally headed into Friday's (Nov. 9) national championship race in Lake Placid, New York.
The senior has entered as a top-10 runner three-out-of-four seasons during his heralded career as a Mustang.
Friday's national championship event is slated to begin at 12:00 p.m. and will feature an 8-kilometer race from Lake Placid.
A full recap of the 2012 USCAA Men's Cross Country National Championship will be available after the race.
