Simpson University Sports News


REDDING, Calif. - Jaclyn Van Schooten is new to the cross country world. The 2013-2014 season is only her second year running cross country ever, and she has had a positive “run” so far. Walking on to the cross country team last year, she finished sixth in the California Pacific Championships, was an NAIA Nationals competitor, and won the Red Hawk Award.

Van Schooten finished first for the Red Hawks in the Nor Cal Challenge Saturday, Sept. 14., with a time of 21:32. She placed 20th out of 82 runners competing in the 5K race. She finished 31st at the 2013 Humboldt State University Invitation on Saturday, Sept. 7.

“I’m looking forward to the trips and our teams’ hard work paying off to win championships this year,” said Van Schooten.
