Daniels and Posey earn BMX national titles in Phoenix

  
  


Phoenix, Ariz. (March 2, 2013) -- The collegiate BMX national championships took place Saturday in Phoenix, Ariz., as the riders took to the Black Mountain BMX Track. A record turnout of 52 riders, more than twice the participation of 2012, battled it out for individual and team titles on behalf of 12 colleges and universities in front of over 5,000 enthusiastic BMX fans.

Collegiate Women
Women’s participation more than tripled from last year, to 23 total entrants, but the top result remained the same as last year: Dominique Daniels (Gilbert, Ariz./Grand Canyon University) won the day after winning two of her motos and the semifinals, overcoming stiff competition from defending team champions Lindsey Wilson College and newcomers Marian University. Second place for the day went to the young Shayona Glynn (Norco, Calif./Norco College), who surged late in the main event to claim the silver. In third was last year’s fifth-place finisher, Crystal Kalogris (Fort Wayne, Ind./Marian University), followed closely by Lindsey Wilson College’s Stephanie Caluag (Columbia, Ky.) and Lindenwood University’s Madison Pitts (Lake Worth, Fla.).

Collegiate Men
On the men’s side, 29 riders took to the track, and the competition was tight all the way to the end. After dominating the day in their respective motos, the final was an extremely close match between defending champion Danny Caluag (Chino, Calif./Lindsey Wilson College), teammate Logan Collins (Mount Juliet, Tenn.), and Justin Posey (Winston Salem, N.C./Marian University). Once Posey took the lead early in the race, the pair from Lindsey Wilson couldn’t pass him. Right in the thick of things, though, were Posey’s teammate Bryce Hocking (Carlsbad, Calif.) and fellow midwesterner Jarrod Adcock (Pekin, Ill./Northern Illinois University).

Team Omnium
Defending champions Lindsey Wilson College came excruciatingly close to succeeding yet again, but Marian University continued their collegiate national championship surge and won a tiebreaker due to Justin Posey’s win. Fort Lewis College bested Lindenwood University for third, with Colorado Mesa University showing a strong performance for fifth, and placing as the best Division II program in the event.
