Ingen places 12th overall at NCAA Northeast Regionals
could receive at-large spot depending on final team selections
Sunday at 7 p.m.
HAMDEN, Conn.-- Senior Erik
van Ingen placed 12th overall in the men's race, highlighting
the Binghamton cross country teams' performances at the NCAA
Northeast Regional on Saturday afternoon at Hammonasset State
Park. The Bearcat men were 14th out of 35 teams while the women
were 25th, also out of 35 squads.
van Ingen, who clocked a time of 30:17 in the 10K race, remains
alive for his second consecutive individual bid to the NCAA Championships.
Syracuse and Iona finished first and second in the team standings
and cliched team berths. On Sunday night, Providence could receive
an at-large bid, meaning van Ingen would be the fourth finisher
in the race not on a team going to the national meet. Should
that happen, he would grab the final individual spot for the
race, which will be held Nov. 22 at Indiana State University.
Last season, van Ingen placed a program-best seventh overall
at the Northeast Regional Meet and was also the fourth-highest
individual not on a team that advanced to the NCAA Championship.
Graduate student Chris
Gaube was 57th (31:18.3) and Adam
Quinn was 65th.
On the women's side, sophomore Lindsay
Raulli was Binghamton's top finisher, placing 82nd in
the 6K event.
NOTE: Final selections for the NCAA Championships will
be known at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
