Team USA/Jacque Taylor

From her proud dad (and rightfully so). Another great achievement for one of the finest runners in NCS history:

Jacque competed in the USA Cross Country Championships this pass weekend (6K) in San Diego and ran a incredible race to qualify for Team USA (Junior Team). A field of than 170 athletes representing 16 national federations will compete on March 1st at the fourth annual North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) Cross Country Championships at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida. The NACAC Championships will contest races for the open men's 8 km, open women's 6 km, junior men's 6 km and junior women's 4 km. Jacque will be running representing the USA. Jacque will receive her Team USA uniform this week (COOL)... we will keep you all informed as everything progresses..

Go Team USA,

More about Jacque from Joe Hartman:

Jacque Taylor took off her Santa Rosa Express uniform for one race and raced for the Buffalo Chips Running Club of Sacramento at the US Cross Country Nationals in San Diego. We know she's very very good, but we were still surprised by this race. She snuck into the top ten in a very strong albeit small field in the Junior Women's race and took 8th place!! She was asked to be on the US national team at the NACAC race which is against North and Central American teams in Orlando on March 1st. It's like a pre-world meet that the US has to qualify for to go to Scotland.... runners 1 through 6 in San Diego get to go to Scotland and race at worlds on March 30th. So anyhow below is the press release from the race. She also became a team national champion with the Buffalo Babes as the girls won pretty easily against 5 other teams. Thanks for any coverage.
