Spencer Dunn, 15, Class A State Champion of Edward Little High School, recently competed in the Junior Men’s 10,000m Race Walk at the USA Track & Field Outdoor National Championships at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
In his first appearance on the junior national stage, Dunn placed sixth with a time of 54:35. This earned him a spot on the USA junior team that will compete at the 25th annual USA v. Canada Junior Race Walk Dual in Boston in August. Just one week earlier, Dunn had a second place, All American finish at the New Balance High School Nationals in Greensboro, NC.
His older sister, Abby Dunn, 19, two-time NAIA All-American of Goshen College, competed in the Junior Women’s 10,000m Race Walk. In her fifth and final appearance as a junior athlete, Dunn placed fourth with a time of 56:35. This earned her a spot on the same USA junior team as Spencer. This was Abby’s fifth time earning a spot on the USA v. Canada Junior Dual Team. This will also be the first and only time the Dunns will be able to compete on a junior national team together.
