Stadler races to weekly Centennial honor

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Centennial Conference on Monday afternoon tabbed Haverford College's Christopher Stadler its runner of the week following the senior's strong outing at the Main Line Invitational.

A 2012 cross country All-American, Stadler raced to a fourth-place finish Thursday, Sept. 26 at Haverford's Main Line race. He trailed only a trio of runners from Division I Villanova University, two of whom are all-Americans while the other, Thursday's race winner, was the 2012 Australian junior cross country champion.

Stadler and the Fords -- ranked second in the D-III national poll -- are back in action Saturday at the Lehigh (Univ.) Paul Short Meet.
