Alissa McKaig of Zap Fitness Foundation of Blowing Rock turned in an 11th-place finish in the women's 10,000-meter run at the Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore., Friday night. McKaig finished the race in 32:31.66; Amy Hastings of Brooks won the race in 31:58.36. Sarah Porter, who's had a productive season with Zap Fitness did not finish the race. Hastings led much of the second half of the race and moved from third to first with 100 meters to go before winning the race. Natosha Rogers
of Texas A&M was second in 31:59.21 and Shalane Flanagan was third in 31:59.69. Rogers does not have the Olympic 'A' standard and Flanagan plans to run the marathon instead of the 10,000 at the Olympics, so fourth-place finisher Lisa Uhl and seventh-place finisher Janet Cherobon-Bawcom, the only other two competitors with the 'A' standard, made the Olympic team.
