New York, NY—In just its second year of existence, the VS Athletics Track Club Men’s Team placed third at the 2007 USATF National Club Track & Field Championships with 110 points. The New Jersey’s Shore AC won the Men’s and Women’s team titles with New York’s mega-club, the Executive Track Club, placing 2nd in both divisions. Held at spectacular Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island in New York City, the meet featured 618 athletes representing 62 clubs from 27 States.

In the Women’s team competition, the VSA women scored in 10 events and placed 7th led by Roseline Agboke’s gold and bronze medal performances in the 800 meters and 1500 meters, Katie Kraychir’s silver in the Hammer, and Genevieve Graff-Ermeling’s bronze in the 5000 meters.
