Spotlight: Meet Josh Yeager
We are pleased to announce the addition of a new team member, Josh Yeager. He recently finished his eligibility and graduate degree at South Dakota State University, after competing as an undergraduate at Drake University. The Cedar Point, Iowa native excelled in events including the 1500m, 3000m steeplechase, 5000m, and cross country.
According to Coach Chris Lundstrom, "Josh has great range and we believe he has a lot of untapped potential. He will focus primarily on the track, but you may see him hit the roads and cross country course on occasion as well." His personal bests of 13:42 in the 5000m and 8:48 in the 3000m steeplechase were run in the spring of 2021.
Yeager said following via Instagram: "Fourteen-year old Josh wanted nothing more than to run at the next level post-collegiately. I could spew paragraphs about my tumultuous running journey and how continuing didn't seem possible...However, I'll just say that I'm proud of myself for chasing, and achieving, that childhood dream. Thanks to all that helped me along the way." You can follow him on Instagram HERE.
