Photo by Jonathan Grooms US #6 Jacob Burcham, junior from Cabell Midland, ran his kind of race to win the prestigious Trinity/Valkyrie Invitational in Louisville Kentucky in 15:03. Burcham was content to stay in the lead pack and remained in 1st place or 2nd place for most of the race. With about a 1000 meters to go Brock Baker of Oakland High School in Tennessee made a move and Burcham went with him until he made his own move to outkick Baker who ran 15:07.
