Hosting NCAA New England regionals today, both Eph cross-country teams had very successful outings despite the rain. They’ll run on a much flatter course next weekend at the NCAA championships at Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana.

On the men’s side, Edgar Kosgey won the 8K event, followed in by four other Ephs in the top 15. Their score of 36 placed them far ahead of second place Amherst, who, with a 122, also earned an automatic championship berth. Several other NESCAC schools may be granted at-large slots, depending on the results in other regions.

On the women’s side, only Amherst’s Elise Tropiano managed to get past Eph Lauren Philbrook, who is having a phenomenal year. Middlebury won this 6K event with a 57, while Williams tallied a 87 for second. Both teams earned automatic championship berths and could be joined by at-large invitees from New England.
