Augsburg press release on Dennis Barker, who was the coach for the US team that competed this weekend in Scotland, is HERE.

Coach Barker's report on the races in Scotland: "Senior Women:  The Europeans had a strong team and were in control of the race.  The US and GB/NI were neck and neck through three runners but they put their 4, 5, and 6 just in front of ours and that was the difference.  Ladia ran very well. She started a little too far back maybe, but finished strong.  She outkicked Julia Bleasdale, a 15:02 5K and sub 31 10K runner who finished 10th in the Olympics last summer. 

"Senior Men: Team depth won it for our senior men.  The Europeans and GB/NI had some tough guys up front but our 2-6 guys  made up a good pack and broke up those teams a bit.  Jon Peterson ran in that pack.  He wanted to do a little better, but I thought it was a solid race for him."
