INDIANAPOLIS -- With his 18-place showing at the regional meet on Saturday, Jake Hickey of the University of New England has earned a spot in the 2019 NCAA Division III Men's Cross Country Championship, which will be run on November 23 in Louisville, Kentucky. The participating teams and individuals were released Sunday (Nov. 17) by the national committee on NCAA.com.
Hickey secured his bid by being one of the top seven individuals (fourth) at the New England race that ultimately were not already part of a qualifying team. The top two squads from eight geographic regions automatically advanced, and another 16 were selected at-large. Those programs will be joined by 56 solo runners at the finals site.
It is the first time a UNE runner, male or female, has reached the NCAA Championship. In two seasons with the Nor'easters, Hickey has won seven of 13 events, including a pair of Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) titles. His All-New England performance was also a first for the men's program.
The race will begin at 10:45 a.m. at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in Lousiville.
