The ZAP Fitness Foundation announced on Friday 12/3 that 2010 High Point University (NC) graduate Jesse Cherry has been added to the resident athlete team. Cherry, a multiple Big South Conference Champion, had run 14:02 for 5,000m on the track and 28:44 for 10,000m - both in 2010. Cherry also dabbled in the longer distances as a senior at High Point running 1:05 for the 1/2 marathon. "Jesse has all the tools to be an outstanding young runner," said Elite Athlete Coach Pete Rea. "He handles higher volume well and is incredibly motivated to realize his potential. Jesse will fit in well with our core group focused on the 2012 Olympic Trials and beyond."
