Samuel Chelanga's last visit here was a wakeup call. Running in the Indiana State Pre-Nationals in October at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center, the Liberty University junior finished second, exposing a lack of

preparation. A month later, he returned. And was he ready. Chelanga destroyed the 10K course record Monday in the NCAA Division I Men's Cross Country Championships, clocking 28 minutes, 41 seconds. Forget the Pre-Nationals, forget the 2008 record of 29:03 set by champion Galen Rupp of Oregon. This time, Chelanga left nothing to chance.
