Rebels Picked to Finish Second in SEC Cross Country
Aug. 29, 2016

OXFORD, Miss. – The 2015 cross country season was another historic year for the Rebels.

The men’s team finished second in the NCAA South Regional, earning them their second straight trip to the NCAA Championships where they finished 30th. The men were also able to finish third in the SEC Championship after barely missing the title in 2014.

With the success of recent years, and the return of the majority of runners to the Ole Miss roster, the SEC coaches picked the Rebel men to finish second in the SEC when the preseason rankings were released Monday. 

The Rebels return lots of experience in eight different All-Region runners. Senior Robert Domanic is the only three-time All-Region member in program history (2013, 2014, 2015) along with fellow 2014 members Taylor Caldwell, Wesley Gallagher, Trevor Gilley and Sean Tobin. Domanic and Tobin were joined in 2015 by Craig Engels, MJ Erb and Mark Robertson.

The USTFCCCA regional rankings were released Monday as well, and the men were picked to finish first in the South Region for the second consecutive year after their second-place finish in 2015.

The women’s team is coming off a program-best fifth-place finish at the 2015 SEC Championships and seventh-place finish at the NCAA South Regional.



The SEC coaches picked the Rebels to repeat their fifth-place finish at the conference meet. They also will start the year off picked to finish third in the NCAA South Region. 

The women’s team returns second-team All-SEC runner Mary Alex England after an impressive 2015 campaign which saw her individually finishing 10th overall at the SEC Championships, the highest finish by any Rebel in 2015.

Both the men and women will open their 2016 season Saturday, September 3, at the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic in Memphis, Tennessee.
