    University of Scranton athletics communications manager Randy Shemanski is accustomed to publicizing the accomplishments of Royals' student-athletes and teams, ranging from games and championships won to All-Conference, All-Region, and All-American awards.  Recently though, Shemanski achieved a remarkable feat of his own, winning his age group at the USA Track & Field (USATF) 50 Mile Trail national championship.

    At the Cayuga Trails 50 on July 21, Shemanski, who is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), completed the 50-mile course in Ithaca, New York in 11 hours, 19 minutes, and 51 seconds to finish first in his age bracket and 54th out of 126 runners to complete the ultramarathon.   

    The Cayuga Trails 50, which is one of the most competitive 50-mile races in the country, was Shemanski's third ultramarathon, which is defined as any footrace longer than the 26.2 miles in a traditional marathon.
