MHC XC Qualifies for Nationals Once Again!!
The Mars Hill Cross Country team qualified for Nationals by virtue of placing 3rd at the Regional Meet on Saturday. 7 Mars Hill runners ran in the race, all setting new personal best 10k (6.2 miles) times! It was clear that this is the race we were peaking for!!
Now our season goes on two more weeks and we get to put on our sheepskin underwear and wool socks to run in Louisville, Kentucky on December 4th and the 2010 NCAA XC Championships. It will most certainly be a race to remember, and a great way to go out!
We aren’t satisfied with just making it, however…our goal is to do better than 18th, the highest finish of a previous Mars Hill Cross Country team at the national meet.
This year’s Nationals is so much later than usual because this year’s nationals is in conjunction with the NCAA D2 “Fall Sports Festival” in which all D2 fall sport championships will be held in Louisville in the span of a week, and we get to go watch them! So with Thanksgiving Break, us runners only have 6 more day of school left this for this semester! Wahoo!! It pays to run fast!!
Updates will be given HERE while at the National Meet!
Here are some photos from Regionals on Saturday:
