The U.S. Army Legal Services Agency, a unit that fields some of the fastest runners in Belvoir’s Commander’s Cup intramurals program, claimed victory in the season-closing cross-country run, Sept. 27 at the Fort Belvoir Golf Club, downing the 249th Engineer Battalion in overall times.
Claudia McNally, competing for the Office of the Chief Army Reserve, crossed the finish line with a time of 20:05, to claim the champion title in the women’s open division; and Matt Worstell, representing perennial contender, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, earned the first-place distinction in the men’s open division, with a time of 18:40.
Justin Fitzgerald, league coordinator and sports facility manager, with Lt. Col. Andrew Wilbraham, Fort Belvoir Headquarters Battalion commander, hosted a ceremony after the race, when representatives from USALSA and the 249th Engineers accepted the champion and runner-up trophies, respectively. The Defense Logistics Agency Cross-Country Team also accepted the Commander’s Cup trophy, on behalf of the entire unit.
