The UC Davis men’s cross country team graduated a couple of key racers and were in need of a front-runner for the squad.
They found it in sophomore Trevor Halsted. The young racer stepped up in a big way for the Aggies, after a very quiet freshman campaign.
Halsted was the top UC Davis finisher in every single race he competed in. This included his victory at the Aggie Open and his sixth-place finish at the Big West Conference Championships.
A 13th-place finish at the Stanford Invitational, a sixth-place finish at the Bronco Invite and a 20th-place finish at the NCAA West Regional rounded out the season for Halsted.
His performances earned him a place on the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Region team.
At the close of the 2012 season, Halsted established himself as the leader for the Aggies, providing a bright future for the young UC Davis squad.
