Minneapolis/St. Paul – Aug. 11, 2015 – Four up-and-coming and highly decorated collegiate distance runners have joined Team USA Minnesota, bringing the number of athletes to 11 in the long-time training group that is based in Minneapolis/St. Paul. The recent graduates include Parker Stinson from the University of Oregon, Biya Simbassa of the University of Oklahoma, Katy Moen from Iowa State University, and Megan Goethals out of the University of Washington.
“This is a real exciting group of young runners to bring in,” said Team USA Minnesota coach Dennis Barker. “They have all shown the ability to compete successfully at a high level and they all competed for great collegiate programs under outstanding coaches. They know what it’s like to win and be a part of winning programs and that’s the kind of talent and attitude we were looking for.”
