NCAA XC Regionals Round-Up - USA Athletics Scholarships

NCAA XC Regionals Round-Up

NCAA Conferences done - now Regionals

One thing we said in our regional’s preview article last week was that failure to perform would signal the end of the cross country season. Unfortunately for the vast majority of collegiate teams, the season is now over and only the elite few remain. Regional’s was an exciting weekend, full of thrills and upsets, most notably:

- Arkansas men failing to qualify for the first time since 1973

- 2007 & 2008 Men’s Champions Oregon failing to qualify after freshman sensation Lukas Verzbicas quits the team the week of regional’s

- Unheralded Cal Poly finish 3rd in the West region, usually considered the strongest region

Of the top 10 ranked teams, all qualified comfortably. #15 ranked Arkansas were the highest ranked men’s team not to qualify. Other ranked teams to fall short at regional’s included: #17 Oregon, #21 UCLA, #25 North Carolina, #26 Louisville

There were also mixed results from the British and Irish athletes. Plenty of qualifiers, though such is the level of competition there were always going to be a few who didn’t make the cut.

Below are the results, and those who qualified are highlighted. Later in the week we will give a full breakdown of all British and Irish athletes form this season and previous results at NCAA’s.

On the women’s side, Providence entered the meet ranked #5 in the nation despite resting athletes in the run up. They would have certainly considered themselves for the win in Terre Haute but instead will be at home while the big dance kicks off without them.
