Whelan excels at Junior Nationals

Recent Hamburg grad Joe Whelan took second in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase at the USA Junior National Sunday at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Whelan ran a time of 9:09.97, second to Sean Soderman (Appalachian State) in 9:05.82.

The top two finishers in each Junior National event qualify for the Pan American Junior Games, however those games maybe be canceled (thanks to for the link).  

Here's a link to a post by the Syracuse University -- where Whelan will be competing for the Orange next year.
