Division I XC All-Region Honorees Announced for 2015

NEW ORLEANS – All-Region honorees for NCAA Division I Cross Country were recognized Friday evening by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) following the day’s NCAA regional championships meets.

A total of 450 student-athletes (225 men and 225 women) earned the distinction by finishing among the top 25 individual finishers at one of the nine regional sites across the country. Only athletes competing for USTFCCCA member programs are eligible for the award.

Only two teams in the country were deep enough on Friday to earn seven All-Region awards, and it’s a pairing that portends a spectacular match-up at the NCAA Championships in Louisville next Saturday: the men of No. 1 Colorado and No. 2 Syracuse. The Buffaloes won the Mountain and the Orangemen claimed the Northeast.

Four women’s teams were represented on the All-Region list by six runners. Mountain champion No. 2 Colorado, South Central champion No. 3 Arkansas, Great Lakes champion No. 7 Michigan and Midwest champion No. 13 Oklahoma State.

Northeast men’s runner-up No. 9 Iona also earned six All-Region honors.

Led by the Syracuse men, no conference in the country scored more All-Region honors than the 30 amassed by the ACC. Next up was the Pac-12 led by Colorado with 25, followed by the Big Ten with 24 and the SEC with 22.

The ACC was also the top women’s conference with 27 honorees. Then came the SEC with 25, the Big Ten with 24 and both the Big 12 and Pac-12 with 21 apiece.

Freshman runners – including West Region women’s champ Allie Ostrander of Boise State – accounted for 33 of the women’s awards and 16 of the men’s.

Five women’s teams featured two All-Region honorees – all of which finished first or second in their regions’ team standings. Those include Mountain champion No. 2 Colorado and South champion No. 27 Vanderbilt, as well as West runner-up No. 9 Boise State, Southeast runner-up No. 8 NC State and Great Lakes runner-up No. 15 Notre Dame.

The men of Princeton and Lamar both depended on two frosh All-Region honorees.

The NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships will be contested November 21 in Louisville, Kentucky, hosted by Louisville at the E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park. The meet will be broadcast live online at NCAA.com.

Regional athletes and coaches of the year will be announced Tuesday.
