Shipley races his way to NWC weekly cross country honors

FOREST GROVE – Tyler Shipley’s (Fr., Forest Grove, Ore.) performance at Saturday’s Sundodger Invitational was eye-opening to say the least.  The race certainly opened the eyes of the Northwst Conference’s sports information directors, who selected Shipley as the league’s Men’s Cross Country Student-Athlete of the Week.

 

Running in just his second collegiate race (the first being a dual against George Fox on Sept. 1), Shipley finished 13th in the 236-runner field in the Sundodger’s men’s open race, which featured all non-Division I runners.  Shipley was the first Division III athlete to cross the line in a time of 25:29.42.

 

The time ranks Shipley No. 8 on Pacific’s All-Time List in just his first race at the championship 8,000-meter distance and is just the sixth sub-26-minute performance for a Pacific athlete in the last 30 years.

 

“Tyler had an excellent race Saturday and has been training consistently to prepare for the 2012 season,” said Pacific Head Coach Tim Boyce.  “He ran consistent splits throughout the race and showed great poise.  He has a great attitude about training and racing and is excited for the upcoming challenges on the schedule.”

 

A 2012 graduate of Forest Grove High School, Shipley was the 2011 Pacific Conference cross country champion and finished in 32nd place at that year’s Oregon 6A Cross Country Championships.  His performance led the Vikings to a ninth place team finish.

 

Shipley’s performance on Saturday led Pacific to a 14th place team finish.  The Boxers will return to action on Saturday as they compete at the Northwest Classic on the campus of Lane Community College in Eugene.
