Shawnee graduate John Ruona, a sophomore at Mount St. Mary’s, ran a huge steeplechase PR over the weekend at the Metro Atlantic Conference Championships on his home track in Emmitsburg, Md.
Ruona lowered his PR in the 3,000-meter steeple 16 seconds to 9:25.30 and placed 5th in the conference meet. His previous PR was 9:41.44 from the Northeast Conference Championships last year, also in Emmitsburg.
Ruona’s time is No. 8 in St. Peter’s history.
Mount St. Mary’s competes this weekend at the 114th annual IC4A Championships in Fairfax, Va.
