The Iowa Lakes Community College cross country team recently re-signed Zane Blanchard for its 2011 season.
Blanchard, a native of Decorah, Iowa, was typically the number two or three runner for the Laker men’s team during the 2010 season.
“I am looking forward to having Zane back next year,” said Head Coach Molly Struve. “He was a strong leader for us this past fall and will provide a good example for the new athletes.”
Blanchard was a member of the national qualifying team last fall and was named to the Second Team Academic All-Region team.
“He has a lot of talent and, with more summer training, I believe he can drop his personal best time by a minute or more this fall,” commented Struve.
The Iowa Lakes men’s and women’s cross country teams will begin the 2011 season in early August.
