Zone 5 Keeps Their Winning Streak Alive

Harrisburg, Pa. - Oct. 12

On top of that, his team was defending their gold medal from last year.

Nusz Shortens Her To-Do List At Harrisburg

Harrisburg, Pa.—Oct. 19

When Kent Farrington sat down with Meagan Nusz for lunch two years ago to discuss training her, he suggested she write a list of her longterm goals. But Nusz was way ahead of him. She reached into her purse and pulled out a two-page list she’d compiled ages ago and passed it across the table. That’s when they both knew their partnership would be a good fit.
