UPDATED: Snider, Veatch, Tichenor to Make Cross-Country Trip to Arcadia

A pair of distance runners from the Hoosier State, Griffin Tichenor and Ben Veatch, will be making the long journey to Southern California to compete at one of the nation's premier track & field meets, the Arcadia Invitational. While the current entries do not state entered events, Arcadia is known as the home of the 3200m. Last year 19 boys dipped under the nine minute barrier at this event. With the track record that Tichenor and Veatch have, it wouldn't be surprising if we see them line up in that event.

We will keep you up to date with any other Indiana related Arcadia news as it becomes available.

UPDATE: Looks like we missed a big one - Zack Snider will also be attending. Below is the invitational field including PRs.
