Cherokee graduate Megan Lacy placed 13th in the U.S. 15K Road Championships Saturday in Jacksonville.

Lacy covered the 9.3-mile Gate River Run course in 52:57, running her 5Ks in 17:42, 17:31 and 17:44. She passed two runners in the final 200 to move up from 15th to 13th.

This was Lacy’s first race at the 15K distance. Over the past few months, she’s PR’d at 5,000 meters on the track outdoors with a 16:36.18 in Nashville in June, at 10,000 meters outdoors on the track with a 33:07.10 in Portland, Ore., in May, and in the half marathon with a 1:15.21 in September in Valley Cottage, N.Y.

In December, Lacy placed 4th in the World Trail Championships over 21K in Kualoa Ranch in Kapalua, Hawaii.
