Further East, Youghal AC's Fearghal Curtin, recently ran in the PAC-12 Cross Country Championships in Palo Alto, California, representing his new college, Arizona State University

Report from Arizona State University

In the men's 8K title race, Fearghal Curtin topped his season debut, at the Pre-Nationals Invitational, two weeks ago, by leading the line for the Sun Devils, with a 43rd-place finish in 24:19.7, the best time by a Sun Devil this season.

"For Fearghal, it was a heck of a race and a heck of an improvement than his first race two weeks ago," men's head coach Cory Leslie said. "But really when you look at Jackson or really any guy, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who didn't run faster today than they did last time we were here.
