Chandler Dalton

LUBBOCK, TEXAS – Washburn High School’s Chandler Dalton finished 67th among 107 runners in the National Small Schools XC Nationals on the Lubbock Christian University course Saturday, November 20. His time was 18.26.48.

Coach Justin Acuff said he was pleased with Dalton’s effort.

“Races like this are something that can really push a runner to the next level. Getting outside of the state and competing against others will definitely pay off in the long run,” Acuff said.

He said it was a non-scholastic event and Dalton ran unattached. 

“It was an open race but there were certain requirements to be able to register. He had to be from a small school and there were minimum PR time requirements,” Acuff said.

He said Dalton was the only Tennessee runner entered.
