Ole Miss Cross Country Heads To NCAA Regionals
Nov. 9, 2017

Tuscaloosa, Ala. — Ole Miss men’s and women’s cross country will look to qualify for the NCAA Championship for just the second time in school history at Friday’s NCAA South Region Championships, hosted by the University of Alabama.

There are two ways to qualify for the NCAA Championship hosted by the University of Louisville. The top two teams from every region automatically qualify for the NCAA Championship; the next four individual finishers who aren’t attached to a team also qualify automatically.

If neither team finish in the top two in the regional championship, they will look to join 13 other teams that qualify via a national selection process. The top-25 individual finishers from each region will earn All-Region honors.

Including Ole Miss, there will be 33 Division I men’s teams and 34 Division I women’s teams competing on Friday.

The men’s team comes in at No. 29 in the latest USTFCCCA National Rankings and is accompanied by No. 21 Middle Tennessee and No. 28 Alabama in the men’s 8K. Other SEC teams competing includes Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

In the Women’s 6K, Ole Miss is coming in at No. 22 in the latest USTFCCCA National Rankings and are joined by No. 14 Georgia. Other SEC teams competing includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

The men look to qualify for the NCAA Championship a fourth-straight year led by senior Sean Tobin. The rest of the runners include Taylor Caldwell, Trevor Gilley, Derek Gutierrez, Brandon Harvey, Nolan Hesse, Ryan Manahan, Ben Savino, Parker Scott and Waleed Suliman.

Led by Seniors Emily Bean and Hannah Christen, the women’s team looks for a second-straight NCAA Championship qualification after their first trip to Nationals last year. The rest of the runners are Anna Braswell, Shelby Brown, Madeleine King, Kat MacNeal, Clio Ozanne-Jaques and Nicole Rice.

The women’s 6K will start at 9 a.m. CT and the men’s 8K will begin at 10 a.m. CT. There will be live results during the meet.
