NCAA South Region Championships Central

OXFORD, Miss. - The Rebel men's and women's cross country teams hit the road for Tuscaloosa, Ala., this week to compete in Friday's NCAA South Region Championships for a chance to advance to the Nov. 23 NCAA Championships.

The University of Alabama hosts the South Regional at the Harry Pritchett Running Park.

The men's 10K race is set for 10 a.m. CT and the women will immediately follow with the 6K races that begin at 11:15 a.m. CT.

All-SEC runner Haley Cutright will lead the Rebels into Tuscaloosa looking to make some noise in the South Region. Cutright comes off an impressive performance at the SEC Championships in which she finished 11th overall with a 6K time of 20:46.64 and became the third Rebel woman ever to earn All-SEC honors. Another bright spot for Ole Miss was freshman Sophie Linn, who placed 24th overall (21:18.87) en route to SEC All-Freshman honors.

The Lady Rebels head into the regional with a No. 6 ranking in the USTFCCCA South Region poll.

"The women were disappointed at the SEC Championships," head coach Brian O'Neal said, "but they have come back and worked hard and are looking forward to going out there and competing this weekend."

Senior Max Holman and sophomore Ian Carter, who have led the Rebels all year, will look to do the same in the South Region Championships. They come off personal-best performances, placing 38th and 39th, respectively, at the SEC Championships. SEC All-Freshman runner Trevor Gilley will look to continue the strides he made at the conference meet.

"For the men, this is five out of our seven runners' first time to competitively run a 10K," O'Neal said.  "I know they are looking forward to it and I know they are excited to go and compete and to see where their fitness level lies here at the end of the cross country season."

Holman and Carter are the only two runners to have competitively run a 10K for the young Rebel squad. Holman placed 69th individually at last year's South Regional Championship race.

Updates and results will be posted at www.rolltide.com as well as flotrack.org as each race is completed.
