Men’s cross country set for NCAA Championships

James Grandberry

The culmination of the Texas men’s cross country team’s entire season’s work is set to take place this weekend at the NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Indiana. 

The Texas men, after qualifying in second place at the NCAA South Central Regional a week ago, find themselves with a lot to prove at their sixth-straight NCAA Championship appearance. 

Seniors Craig Lutz and Mark Pinales look to lead the team to a better finish than last year’s 14th place finish. Lutz and senior Ryan Dohner won All-American honors in last season’s championships, but the 30th-ranked Longhorns have never been successful in the last meet of the season. Texas hopes to bring back the team’s first championship trophy Saturday.
