Field announced for NCAA Cross Country Championships

Iowa State Oklahoma State Sweep Midwest Region

Senior Kala Kopecek, in her final race, finished in 21:55.2 in 122nd place, while freshman Audrey Lookner took 132nd place in 22:01.7.

The No. 9-ranked Carleton College women's cross-country team hosted the NCAA Division III Central Region Championships on Saturday, and the Knights finished first out of 32 teams with a team score of 48.

Not a lot of things seem to affect the IU cross-country teams' top runners when it comes to being prepared to compete. "It was great for him to end the season leading the team".

"We really didn't talk much about the weather".

"To be in the position that we were was fantastic", said Carleton head coach Donna Ricks. "The look on their faces after the race will stick with me for a lifetime".

Being the first Aggie teams to compete at the NCAA National Championship is a special feeling for everyone involved, but for those who have battled through injuries, like senior Tori Parkinson, it's nearly hard to put into words.

Receveur said the key to her success is to just approach every race as relaxed as possible. I just wasn't sure. Little did we know how talented and how strong this team would be.

"I told the guys before the race let's get seven victories today, and let's go do what we are capable of doing", he said. "It was definitely a different strategy and a different level of energy exertion".

The George Washington men's cross country team, two weeks removed from its program-best fourth-place finish at the Atlantic 10 Championship, had another record-setting showing at Friday's NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional. Only the top two finishing teams automatically qualified.

Junior Sophia Racette finished 64th (21:22.56), senior Jamie Kempfer finished 67th (21:25.33) and junior Hannah Thomas placed 71st (21:27.81). We've had a lot of talented teams, but to have it all come together like it did at the MIAC Championships and today is truly incredible.

"Thomas was outstanding up front for us and as the men's region representative", Burns said. The men finished 13th out of 32 teams. "He's still a young guy so his future is still very bright and it will be fun to see what he can do as we move forward".
