Another Minnesotan Makes World Cross Team

USA Track and Field officially announced the members of the USA team competing at the IAAF World Championships Cross Country Championships later this month ... and another Minnesotan is on the squad!

Former Minnesota State - Mankato star Marty Rosendahl (pictured), who is currently based in Michigan with the Hansons-Brooks program, made the senior men's 12K team. Rosendahl finished 16th at the USA Cross Country Championships in Boulder in February and earned a place on the 8-runner senior men's squad after other athletes declined spots.

Minnesotan's joining Rosendahl include senior men's teammates Andrew Carlson and Matt Gabrielson, both of Team USA Minnesota, senior women's 8kers Katie McGregor, also of Team USA Minnesota, and Cack Ferrell, and USA junior men's 8k champion Elliott Heath.

World Cross will be contested March 24 in Mombasa, Kenya.
