Ouch! Who knew cross-country was a contact sport?

This meet needed a deer crossing sign.

When you think of contact sports, cross-country doesn’t come to mind.  But try telling that to a college runner in Pennsylvania.

Gwyneed Mercy University’s Justin Deluzio was in the middle of the final race of his career when he was drilled by a deer!  It’s happened at the D3 regionals in Center Valley, Pennsylvania earlier this week.

Deluzio got up and finished the final four miles of the race.
