ORIGINAL STORY:

Junior Summer Hill will compete at the 2016 NCAA Division II Cross Country National Championships on Nov. 19 in St. Leo, Fla.  

Hill earned her second straight trip to the national competition by finishing third out of 144 runners Nov. 5 at the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional Championship at Slippery Rock.

Her time of 22 minutes, 51 seconds, ties Cal U’s best individual regional finish.

A 2015-2016 Academic All-American, Hill earned all-region cross country honors after placing 21st at the 2015 Regional and was 159th at Nationals last year.

Senior Julie Friend, a redshirt this fall, also finished third overall at the 2015 Atlantic Regional contest.
