Trevecca finishes in top four in local 3K race

Trevecca runners won the top five places at the annual Together We Can 3K College Challenge held on September 13, 2003, on the campus of Belmont University. This event, a charity race to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank, brings together students from four universities in the city --Vanderbilt, Belmont, David Lipscomb, and Trevecca. Students from Trevecca performed well. Nathan Barefield, a junior transfer student from Havelock, North Carolina, took first place with a time of 9:53 in the 1.86 mile race. Nicholas Landry (10:47) and James Storie (10:58), both seniors at Trevecca, took second and third places, respectively. Loni Osegueda, a member of the Lady Trojan soccer team, secured a first-place finish for the women with a time of 12:10. Overall, Trevecca entered more than fifty students in the charity race, more than Belmont University, David Lipscomb University, and Vanderbilt University combined. Trevecca also had eight staff/faculty members run in the race. ìThe race was fun, but more importantly it was for a good cause,î says participant Nicholas Landry. Trevecca raised more than $600 for the charity. Participants were also encouraged to bring canned goods to the all-day event. (9/19/03)
