    Im a senior in high school and have completed my USNA application and just waiting to here back from congressmen/senators. I was wondering if contacting the USNA cross country coach would help my admission chances. I ran a 5k this year at 17min20 sec and was a runner on the cc team that won second in the state. I was wondering if this time is fast enough to be competitive at the Naval Academy. Thanks for the help.

    For guys cross-country, normally 16 minutes for 5K. For track, 9:30 for 3200m and 4:30 for 1600m.

    Hope this helps.

    Alright thanks for the help. I guess my 5k doesnt cut it...maybe I will have more luck with track.

    It's worth a try. Don't just quit without trying.
