Regional XC Results – 39 punch their ticket


Regional meets are about one thing and one thing only. Punching your ticket to Terre Haute in 8 days time. Here’s a roundup of how the British and Irish athletes fared in attempting this.

[colored_box color=”red”]These results are provisional and are based off KOLAS calculator. The official qualifiers will be released on Monday but we do not expect them to change.[/colored_box]

Chris O’Hare, in his penultimate race in the NCAA before turning pro,  took the Midwest victory for the second successive year and in doing so led his Tulsa team to a historic automatic qualification,  behind Tom Farrell’s Oklahoma State. OSU still remain favourites for the National title and very much played Regionals true to form by running in a controlled pack, putting their 5 counters in positions 7 through 11. Textbook Dave Smith.

The Great Lakes region, the Butler girls lived up to their promise and qualified in second place with Katie Clark their top stick in 4th. Tom Curr led Butler’s men home in 16th and takes the final individual spot.

In the Northeast, Friars’ Sarah Collins qualified both on merit and as part of a potential NCAA team, while Kate Avery took matters into her own hands with  a 5th place finish. Matt Gillespie took 2nd in the men’s race followed by no less than 6 more British and Irish men inside the top 20. Harvard, Iona, Providence all through.

In the South Central region, Ash Harrell transferred his Euro XC pedigree onto the NCAA course with an 11th place finish which automatically qualifies him individually for Nationals. Leigh Lattimore (14th) and Jo Adams (17th) were the best placed women.

At the South region, Hannah Walker, Eli Kirk and Pippa Woolven all finish in top 10. Zak Seddon top male through in 19th.

New Mexico men started off the season heavily fancied for an high place finish at Nationals but will have to rely on at at-large bid as they were edged out by NAU and Colorado in a tough Mountain region. Luke Caldwell is through as an individual qualifier regardless. New Mexico women progressed easily.
