Conant Smith Qualifies for Nationals With His 3rd Place Finish At NXN Midwest Regional

           Conant Smith (#2509) earned one of the five automatic qualifying bids to Nationals.  

Congratulations to Ohio's Conant Smith on his impressive 3rd place finish in the championship race at yesterday's Nike Cross Nationals Midwest Regional meet in Terre Haute!  

Smith secured one of the five coveted Nike Cross Nationals automatic qualifying spots with his 15:05.50 effort.  He'll have an opportunity to line up against the country's best runners on December 2nd in Portland.  It's been quite a few weeks for the Middletown High School junior, as he took 2nd place at last weekend's DI OHSAA Ohio State Cross Country Championship and in his latest performance, he topped many of the best runners from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri.  

MileSplit Illinois Webmaster, Tony Jones had an opportunity to speak with Conant following his race: 

MileSplit Ohio wishes Conant the best of luck in his training as he prepares for a big performance next month in Oregon!  

           Conant Smith took 3rd place against a stellar field which inlcluded Dustin Horter (#2269).
