NEW ORLEANS – For the third-straight season, junior Mary Kate DuBard has earned U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Region Honors. DuBard, who earned a career best 13th place finish at the NCAA South Regional meet, just missed the cut for the national meet coming across the finish line as the fifth individual qualifier.
DuBard’s time of 20:32.24 was also a career best at the 6k distance, shaving off nearly 30 seconds from her 2009 time.
The USTFCCCA recognized nearly 450 athletes that earned All-Region awards for cross country in Division I following the NCAA Regional Championships on Saturday, November 13. Athletes of member schools that finished in the top 25 individually at one of the nine regional sites earned the honor.
The Florida State women’s team (South region) was the only team in the country to place all seven of their runners in their region’s top 25. Georgetown notched six All-Region honors.
In the conference rankings, the Big 12 Conference notched 34 women and 26 men on the list to lead both categories. The Big East (25), Big Ten (24), and SEC (22) followed on the men’s side while the ACC (28), Big East (25), and Big Ten (24) came after the Big 12 on the women’s side.
