On Saturday, Nov. 10 the UR men’s and women’s cross country teams competed in the  NCAA Division III Atlantic Regional Championships. The men placed fourth overall, and the women placed seventh.

It was a total team effort for the men — the top finisher of the day was senior Dan Hamilton with a time of 25:55.2, who placed 14th out of over 400 athletes. He was closely followed by junior John Bernstein with a time of 25:58.1, junior Adam Pacheck with a time of 26:03.4 and sophomore Mark Rollfs with a time of 26:18.2, who placed 16th, 21th and 35th respectively. All four runners placed in the top 35, earning All-Region honors.

The other three UR competitors also performed admirably and gave the race all they had, knowing it could be the last of the season.

Junior Yuji Wakimoto came in with a time of 26:27.0, placing 45th. Senior Justin Roncaioli followed directly behind him with a time of 26:27.7 and fellow senior Joseph Mozingo rounded out the Yellowjackets’ success with a 67th-place finish and a time of 26:50.4.

These strong performances earned UR the fourth place overall team finish behind New York University, SUNY Geneseo and Cortland University. NYU and Geneseo earned automatic bids for the NCAA Division III Championships by placing top two.

Based on Saturday’s performance, UR will compete in the NCAA Championships, held in Terre Haute, Ind. This is the third straight year the Yellowjackets are competing in the meet.

The women’s cross country team also competed with heart  in their last race of the season, earning a seventh place overall finish.

Senior Lauren Norton led the team with a second place overall finish at 21:47.6. The only competitor to top her was Amy Cymerman of St. Lawrence University, with a time of 21:37.5.

Norton had previously beaten Cymerman at the New York State Collegiate Track Conference State Championships meet on Oct. 20 when Norton placed first and Cymerman second.

Following Norton was freshman Katherine Knox with a 34th place finish and a time of  23:01.1. Both Norton and Knox earned All-Region honors by placing in the top 35.
Other top finishers for the ’Jackets include senior Zarah Quinn with a time of 23:31.0,  senior Megan Ogle at 23:42.4 and junior Danielle Bessette with a time of 23:47.9, placing 57th, 68th and 71st respectively.

Although the ’Jackets did not earn an overall team bid to the NCAA Division III Championships, Norton  earned a chance to compete individually for the national championship.

Norton will face off against Cymerman and other competitors from around the country on Saturday, Nov. 17 in Terre Haute, Ind., in the NCAA D-III Championship.
