RMAC Media Relations

The Chadron State College men’s cross country team finished 22nd of 30 teams, while the CSC women were 24th of 25, as the Eagles wrapped up their cross country postseason on Saturday morning at the NCAA South Central Regionals at Chaparral Ridge Cross Country Course in Lubbock.

All five women’s runners, and all three on the men’s team who were present when the team last competed at 10 kilometers in 2019, had personal collegiate bests. In addition, each of the 12 student-athletes, including the men’s runners, ran a better average mile pace than they had two weeks prior at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships, despite the men’s NCAA course being two kilometers longer.

Finishing the 10k men’s course first for the Eagles was, for the second consecutive outing, Logan Moravec of Gering, Nebraska. He finished in 32:59 to place 94th of 183 individual entrants, just missing the top half of the field.

The men remained fairly close together, with only about 1:24 separating CSC’s first runner from its seventh.

Crossing first for the women was, once again, true freshman Alissa Wieman, who has led her squad at all five meets in 2021. Her time of 23:49.3, good for 108th of 174, dropped more than a full minute off her prior fastest six-kilometer time.

Colorado School of Mines won the men’s regional title over Adams State University by eight points, and ASU returned the favor, and then some, in the women’s standings, winning by 67.

Individual champs were men’s runner Dillon Powell of Mines and Brianna Robles of Adams.
