BYU women’s cross country takes second in Regionals to qualify for Nationals

This past Friday, BYU Women’s cross country took second place the regional course in Lubbock, Texas, which was enough to secure a spot for NCAA National Championships on Nov. 18 in Virginia.

Carmen Alder was the first BYU runner to cross the finish line, placing fourth with 19:30.5. Following behind her within one-tenth of a second was Aubrey Frentheway. Lexy Halladay-Lowry placed in ninth with 19:47.1, finishing third for BYU.

Alder, Frentheway, Carlee Hansen, Anastaysia Davis, and Jacey Harkins-Farmer have all reached another huge milestone, recording new personal-best times in a 6k course.

The team’s winning culture continues to flourish as this will be the team’s ninth time in a row qualifying for nationals. For the past seven years, the Cougars have consistently finished in the top 10 in nationals as well.

For their big finale, the team will fly to Earlysville, Virginia for the NCAA Cross Country Championships at Panorama Farms on Saturday, Nov. 18.
