Men and Women's Cross Country Sweep NCAA Division III West Region Championships

Estacada, OR: Cross Country made school history this morning as they swept the West Regional Championships making this the first time both teams head to the NCAA Finals in the same year.

The Women needed to win their regional championship in order to be guaranteed a spot at the championships. They did just that by scoring 45 points over Clairmont-Mudd-Scripps 79. Whitworth was third with 90.

Danya Rumore came in 3rd for the 6,000 meter run with a time of 22:01.7; Kari Holbert, 5th, 22:14.5; Natalie Muren, 6th, 22:29.0; Molly Phimister, 10th, 22:56.4; Kristi Dickey, 21st, 23:20.0; Samantha Clarke, 39th, 23:57.1; and Ann Prouty, 52nd, 24:13.1.

The Bearcat Men fulfilled the expectations they had of themselves and of the rest of the West Region. They did all of this at the same time they battled injuries and illnesses, as well as not being able to field their top runners early in the season.

Jacob Stout (pictured left) won the 8,000 meter event with a time of 25:23.1; Aaron Hollinghead, 5th, 25:42.1; Aaron Young, 10th, 25:52.7; Travis Harris, 12th, 25:53.2; Scott Overby, 13th, 25:55.1; Brendan Brown, 16th, 26:02.0; and Tyler Ross, 27th, 26:48.1.

The NCAA Cross Country Championships will be held in Eau Claire, Wisconsin on November 20.
