Colorado will race at the 2009 NCAA Championship on Monday, November 23, in Terre Haute, Ind. The University of Colorado women’s and men’s cross country teams are each ranked No. 6 and Jenny Barringer will be eying the individual championship as she has been the runner-up the last two times she has raced at the meet (2006, 2007).
The No. 6 ranked women’s team won the regional for the first time since 2006 and the No. 5 ranked men’s team took second; ending a streak of six straight regional titles. Senior Jenny Barringer also won the women’s race and was the first CU woman to win the individual title since 2004 when Renee Metivier took home the crown.
