Former Bruin Drops Out of a Race to Propose

CHICAGO, ILL. - - Former Belmont men's cross country and track student-athlete Ryan Snellen ('07) was a newsmaker this weekend at the annual Bucktown 5K. Just ask his new fiance why.

Snellen, an All-Atlantic Sun performer who remains a competitive distance runner, was pacing the field late in the race before he suddenly stopped, grabbed a bouquet of flowers and proposed to his girlfriend, Lauren Peck.
