Women's harriers earn All-Region honors


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross-Country Coaches Association honored two Iowa women’s cross-country runners on Monday.

Graduate student Mareike Schrulle and senior Megan Ranegar earned an NCAA All-Region accolades after their performance at the 2012 NCAA Midwest Regional on Nov. 9. Schrulle placed third in the meet — high enough to qualify the native of Germany for the NCAA championships on Nov. 17 — running the 6,000-meter race in 20:09. Ranegar finished 15th with a time of 21:07.

“Both Mareike and Megan raced at a level reflective of their training and competitive season,” women’s cross-country head coach Layne Anderson said in a release.

The Big Ten had 29 runners earn All-Region honors, more than any other conference. Schrulle will be one of four runners representing the Big Ten at the NCAA meet in Louisville. Two representatives from Wisconsin — Ashley Beutler and Gabi Anzalone, along with Indiana harrier Kelsey Duerksen will join her.
