Tonn takes bronze on international debut


Jessica Tonn turned in an impressive performance to take third place in her debut for USA at the NACAC Cross Country Championships in Trinidad last weekend.

The 27-year-old qualified for the event after a 16th-place finish at the US Cross Country Championships earlier this month, and in Sunday’s race, she produced an even better performance to reach the podium, winning bronze with her time of 36:40. The race was won by her US teammate Breanna Sieracki in 36:34 with Canada’s Jessica O’Connell second in 36:37.

Tonn helped USA to victory in the team event, a just reward for Tonn, who was recently named volunteer coach with Arizona State Sun Devils.
