PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – One of the top distance runners in La Salle University history is winding down an outstanding career. A career which almost got sidetracked.
Senior Meghan McGlinchey holds the school records for the 5000 meter indoor, the 5000 meter outdoor and the 3000 meter outdoor. She was named the Most Outstanding Female Track Performer at the Atlantic-10 Indoor Championships this year and also earned second-team All-American status after placing 15th in the 5000 meter at the NCAA Indoor Championships.
The West Deptford (NJ) High School product says distance running was not on her radar growing up.
