Josh Ricardi hit the "cinders" with an early season Steeplechase at Stanford last night. The Gardiner native (and the last of the "Running Ricardi" kids) is finishing up his eligibility at Idaho State.
The good news - He was part of the fast heat, he finished 12th out of 17 and had a solid time of 9:07.32.
The bad news - He missed the Regional qualifying time by 0.32 seconds (9:07.00 is the qualifying time).
But, John is a champion competitor; and, I predict he is going to get the regional qualifier and then ultimately make it on to NCAA Nationals.
