Saint Mary's Cross Country And Track Alum Rajpaul Pannu Has Qualified For Two U.S. Championships In The Last Six Months
DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Saint Mary’s cross country and track athlete Rajpaul Pannu will represent the Gaels at this week’s USA Track and Field Championships at Drake University, qualifying in the 10,000 meters as the first-ever Gael, current or former, to qualify for the meet.
“I am super proud of Raj,” said Saint Mary’s head coach Marty Kinsey. “He trains mostly on his own while working 50-plus hours a week. To be that driven requires such focus and determination. It's been a pleasure watching him grow as a person over the years. Being his coach has been uplifting and a blessing. He the first Gael Alumni to qualify for the USA National Championships in Track. Another first for our program. Good luck, Raj!”
