For the first time in history the Oregon State cross country team has qualified for the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships as announced by the NCAA on Saturday.
The Beavers were selected as one of the at-large bids after a 6th
place finish at the NCAA West Regional Championships on Friday in Sacramento at the Haggin Oaks Golf Course. This is the first time since the inception of the championship event in 1981 that Oregon State will be in attendance.
The championships take place on Saturday, November 17 at the Zimmer Cross Country Course in Madison, Wis. The women's 6,000-meter race will begin at 8:45 a.m. PT with the men's 10,000-meter race to follow at 9:45 a.m. PT.
It has been a historic season for the Oregon State cross country program led by second year head coach Louie Quintana
. The Beavers attained their highest ever USTFCCCA West Regional ranking at No. 6 for multiple weeks during the season. They also received votes in the USTFCCCA National Poll for just the second time since 2008.
At the Pac-12 Cross Country Championships the Beavers ran for both their lowest placing, 6th
place, and lowest point total in school history. Senior Juliana Mount
earned a Pac-12 All-Conference designation for first time in OSU history.
With its 6th
place finish at the NCAA West Regional Championships on Friday, Oregon State again made history with its highest finish at the regional event. Mount earned her second consecutive All-Region honor after placing 12th
