Jefferson distance runner William Malueg recently won the 3K USATF National Championship for the 9-10-year-old boys division in Paris, Kentucky.

Malueg, a five-time All-American, ran a time of 10:42.57 to win the December race by just over three seconds. He was coming off a USATF state championship.

Malueg’s national championship helped the Jefferson Park and Recreation Department’s 9-10-year-old boys’ team finish sixth nationally. Also contributing to that top-10 finish were team members Caleb Dubois, Bryce Leitsch, Duncan Stephens and Luke Prestridge.

The Jefferson rec dept. had a total of eight runners compete at the national meet. Others competing were Bristol Cook (67th nationally), Triston Thomas (105th nationally) and Logan Roberts (122nd nationally).
