Nico Young Shines In, Then Discusses His NCAA Debut

FloTrack spoke with Northern Arizona University freshman Nico Young after his 8K debut at the Silver State Collegiate Challenge in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday.

Young, a recent Newbury Park High school graduate and a 2019 Team Nationals winner, finished second overall to BYU's Conner Mantz, by just two seconds, in 22:52. BYU defeated NAU in the team scores, 49-54.

"We needed this to jumpstart and kind of like learn from this a lot, so we can use this for the next six weeks leading up to nationals," Young said.
