Stanford’s Miles Unterreiner of Gig Harbor will pull off a remarkable double Saturday that would be logistically impossible without help from his school and a huge assist by the NCAA: He will first compete in the NCAA cross-country meet in Louisville, Ky., then fly to Seattle to interview for a Rhodes Scholarship that afternoon.
Stanford athletic director Bernard Muir said the university received a waiver from the NCAA on the travel so Unterreiner can take a private plane — the only way to make this happen. There were no commercial flights that could get him to Seattle in time for the interviews.
