Junior toxicology major Monica Volk finished a successful USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals in Asheville, North Carolina this spring. She came in third in the Overall D2 Women’s Individual Omnium; placing eighth in the road race and fourth in the criterium.
Volk most recently claimed second in the 2015 USA Cycling U23 National Championship in North Lake Tahoe, California, a race she described as a "super tough 77 miles of hills, sun, and altitude."
Volk will spend the rest of the summer racing at the Penn State Lehigh Valley cycling club’s home track, the famous Valley Preferred Cycling Center’s Velodrome in Breinigsville, PA (known locally as “T-Town”). Penn State Lehigh Valley is home to the Penn State cycling team and has had two cyclists compete in the Olympics.
