MADISON, Wi. - New Mexico sophomore and Heritage (Leesburg) alum Weini Kelati just finished as the national runner-up in the NCAA's Division 1 National Championships. She finished the 6K in 19:46 which is nearly as fast as she ran last year for 7th at Nationals at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville.
Weini was New Mexico's first scorer and helped them finish second as a team. This finish was the highest finish ever by a Virginia alumni. She will have two more tries to become the first national champion from Virginia.
