Flashback Friday: Jakob McConnell Takes Second At WRC Champs

Jakob McConnell earned a runner-up finish at last year's Western Reserve Conference Championship with his time of 16:09.50.  This performance led his Kenston squad to the team title - they collected 24 points.  Then a junior, McConnell only trailed current NC State University athlete, Nate Kawalec in the individual standings.  

This season the Bombers senior has taken four top 7 finishes in five appearances, highlighted by his 16:07.60 showing on his home course at the Frank Gibas Invitational

MileSplit spoke with Jakob following his second place effort at the 2017 WRC Championship.
