An Aggie All-American

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — UC Davis\’ Jonathan Peterson planned to get off to a good start in his first trip to the NCAA Cross Country Championships on Monday. And as he got near the end of the LaVern

\n

Gibson Championship Course, Peterson figured \’why slow down now?\’

\n

The Aggies junior took 14th in the men\’s 10K national race, a great finish that was stronger than he or his coach was expecting.

\n

“The goal was definitely to get up and try and secure an All-American spot, which is top 40, then from there we looked at top 20 as being icing on the cake,” UCD head coach Drew Wartenburg said. “The winds were gusting and it

\n

definitely changed the shape of the race a little bit in terms of having to be patient.

\n

“He did a great job late in the race when he was a little exposed as he had to be trying to tick off some people and move up spots. Patience and a well-executed race plan kept him up above where we thought he\’d be.”

\n

Peterson\’s time of 30:09.1 made him the first Division I All-American in program history. In fact, Peterson is the first Aggie male cross country runner to advance to the national championship meet.

\n

“The first trip to nationals oftentimes is a steep learning curve and an experimental thing, so to get here and run this well in a first opportunity puts him in some lofty company,” Wartenburg added “The key is to bring somebody back, like Jon, with eligibility who can now percolate a little excitement in the program and aim higher for his own individual performance next time. Ideally, to bring teammates on a similar type of endeavor is really where we look to go.”

\n

Notes: Peterson led UCD in virtually every meet throughout the 2010 season, winning both the Hornet Jamboree and the Bronco Invitational, and finishing as the Aggie men\’s top runner at the Stanford Invitational. … He was crowned the Big West Conference men\’s individual champion on Oct. 30, leading UCD men to their first league title, and was named the conference\’s Male Athlete of the Year. … Peterson then earned All-Region honors after finishing fifth overall at the NCAA West Regionals on Nov. 13. … Liberty\’s Samuel Chelanga won the 10K event on Monday, while Oklahoma State won the men\’s team championship.
