(Neb.)- Eagles To Run In Washington
CHADRON, Neb. -- A dozen members of the Chadron State cross country teams—six men and six women--will compete in the Western Washington University Classic at Bellingham on Saturday. It will be the first time the Eagles have entered the meet.
CSC Coach Brian Medigovich said he anticipates about 20 teams will enter both the men's and women's races.
"There always are some good teams along the West Coast and in western Canada and I anticipate that most of them will be there," Medigovich said.
Western Washington is among the teams the CSC coach was referring to. The Vikings' men were fourth and the women were seventh among the 44 teams at the Roy Griak Meet, which the Eagles also entered at the University of Minnesota two weeks ago.
In addition, Simon Frasier from nearby British Columbia won the women's title in Minneapolis.
Medigovich noted that California schools such as Chico State and California-San Diego are perennial contenders in NCAA Division II.
The men's race on Saturday will be the first for the Eagles covering 10 kilometers this season, the coach noted.
In the latest USTFCCCA coaches' poll, released Tuesday, the CSC women were ranked ninth in the NCAA South Central Region, up from 10th the previous week. It is the highest the women's team has been ranked since the end of the 2015 season.
