The Cardinal will surely have an exciting weekend as the men’s and women’s track and field team heads to Seattle in full force for the University of Washington (UW) Invitational.
Today marks one of the most important dates on the calendar for NCAA running. Teams from all stretches of the country will toe the line at their respective NCAA Regional Championship race, hoping to claim a trip to Madison Wisconsin for the NCAA Cross Country National Championships. Between the men’s and women’s divisions, 18 regional races will take place this morning in nine different cities across the country.
On Friday morning, the No. 4 Stanford men’s and No. 6 women’s cross country teams race an 8k and 6k respectively on Stanford Golf Course in the Pac-12 Conference Championships with the men looking to defend their title as champions and the women seeking their first conference championship since 2010.
Stanford’s men’s and women’s cross country teams each placed fourth on Saturday at the NCAA Cross Country Championships in Louisville, Kentucky, marking the first time since 2006 that both teams have placed on the podium.
Both Stanford No. 4 men’s and No. 7 women’s cross country will compete in the NCAA championship this Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky. This is the 24th straight year that both team make an appearance in the race, after the women got an automatic bid after the NCAA regionals on Friday and the men earned an at-large bid.
After a third place finish from the men and a second place finish from the women at Friday’s NCAA West Regionals, both Stanford cross-country teams will represent the Cardinal at the NCAA Cross-Country Championships in Louisville, Kentucky, this Saturday, Nov. 18.
Stanford’s No. 4 men’s and No. 7 women’s cross country teams will compete at the NCAA West Regionals championships Friday morning in Seattle, Washington.
Led by a first place performance from junior Grant Fisher, Stanford men’s cross country won its first Pac-12 Cross Country Championship since 2010 as the women’s team placed third in Friday’s race in Springfield, Oregon.
Fisher recorded his first individual Pac-12 title after finishing runner-up last year to former Oregon runner Edward Cheserek, who won this race the last four years. Fisher’s time of 23:44.9 on the 8k course marks nearly a 30 second improvement from last year.
