University of Illinois redshirt freshman Will Brewster (Grayslake Central) competed in the 2013 USA Cross Country Championships on Saturday, finishing 10th in a field of 72 runners. The 8K race was held at Forest Park, Mo.

"Will had a great run," volunteer coach Michael Allio said of the U of I website. "He got in a good position early. Then the pack moved, he responded well and had a great kick left when it came time to finish. It was an overall impressive performance."

Brewster covered the 8K course in a time of 25:04.40 to earn junior all-American status. The Illini runner was just four places away from qualifying for the World Cross Country Championships, which take place March 24 in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
