Hawkeye harrier Schrulle earns NCAA Championship birth


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The women’s cross country team put together a full team effort, finishing in sixth place out of 31 teams in the NCAA Midwest regional tournament on Sunday.

Mareike Schrulle in particular had a successful run for the Hawkeyes, finishing thired [20:09] at the meet, which was held in Springfield, Mo.

Another noteworthy finish was run by junior Megan Ranegar, who recovered from an Achilles injury and was able to finish in 15th place with a time of 21:07.

Other harriers who ran for the Hawkeyes included Nicole Benson, who finished in 42nd place, and Kelsey Hart, who came in at 77th place.

Three freshman runners filled out the Iowa lineup: Cindy Saliba in 89th place, Lisa Gordon in 99th place, and Courtney Martin in 129th place.

As a team, the regional meet will wrap up the Hawkeye’s season. Individually, Schrulle propelled herself forward — she will run in the NCAA championships on Nov. 17 in Louisville.

“This was a bounce-back effort for the team as a whole,” head coach Layne Anderson said in a release. “Mareike [Schrulle] continues to enjoy a historical season.”
