UNI distance runner Hannah Truniger earned a spot on the national team competing in the Pan American Junior Championships set in Peru July 21-23.
 
She took second in the 5,000-meter run in a time of 17 minutes, 5.37 seconds at the USATF Junior Outdoor Championships held June 23.
 
“I was very surprised,” said Truniger.  “I hadn’t been training a ton, because of injuries. So I went into the race with the mentality of having fun.”
