Matching its program-best 17th place finish in the NCAA South Region Cross Country Championship, the FGCU men’s and women’s cross country team concluded the 2016 campaign on Friday, Nov. 11 at the Apalachee Regional Park.
Finishing with four runners in the top-100 at the NCAA South Region Cross Country Championships for the first time in program history, Luka Ndungu, Carlin Berryhill, Troy Clark and Ronny Greenup finished in 58th, 83rd, 92nd and 98th en route to the team’s third 17th place finish in the last four seasons.
“There’s no fluff at the NCAA Regionals,” FGCU head coach Cassandra Goodson said to FGCU athletics. “It was good to have our teams compete against some of the best. This season has been a positive one. We are thankful for this team.”
Coming off of a third-place finish in the Atlantic Sun Conference Championships, ASUN All-Tournament team member, Ndungu, lead the way for the Eagles for the second consecutive meet, crossing the finish line with a time of 32:15, placing 58th overall.
On the women’s side, Carley Lutzow, Anita Munoz, Regan Farrow and Stephanie Cajas were the only Eagles representing FGCU at the meet, competing individually and not registering team points.
Coming off of a 16th place finish at the ASUN Championships, Lutzow set the tone for the Eagles for the second-consecutive meet, finishing 109th overall with a time of 22:29.
