SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Southern Utah's Aidan Reed is no stranger to donning a Team USA jersey, and he earned that opportunity once again Saturday morning in Sacramento.
At the USATF Junior Outdoor Championships that were held in Hornet Stadium, Reed competed in the 10,000-meter and finished in second place with a time of 31:22.54. This qualifies him to compete in the Pan American Junior Championships in Lima, Peru from July 21-23.
He finished just behind Steven Cross of Florida State (31:20.95) and ahead of Phillip Fishburn from Gonzaga (31:25.37).
The meet in Sacramento featured the best of the best the United States has to offer, across all spectrums of the track and field landscape.
Earlier this year Reed competed for Team USA on the cross country circuit, where he had the opportunity to compete in multiple meets with a Team USA jersey on. This included the IAAF World Cross Country Championships.
The Thunderbirds have enjoyed their time at Hornet Stadium this year, as the SUU men's track and field team finished second in that stadium at the 2017 Big Sky Conference Outdoor Championships, and earned several conference championships and medals along the way.
