Watch Them Now

Jordan Schilit

Key Notes: Schilit, a 2010 All-American, was instrumental in helping to lead the Fords to their first national title last season. Schilit finished among the top five for Haverford in five of the six races that he ran, including crossing the line fourth for the Fords in last year's national championship meet. The junior is already off to a good start in the 2011 campaign, as he has finished first among Haverford runners in each of the squad's two races so far this season.
