NEW ORLEANS, La. - Long Beach State senior Rosa Del Toro and sophomore Heath Reedyearned all-region awards for cross country by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for this past weekend's performance at the NCAA West Regional at Stanford.
The USTFCCCA recognized 450 athletes on Monday from member schools that finished in the top 25 individually at one of nine regional sites.
Eight student-athletes from the Big West Conference earned all-region honors as four runners were from Cal Poly, two from Long Beach State and UC Davis and UC Riverside had one runner each.
Reedy recorded the highest finish among all LBSU runners at last Saturday's regional at the Stanford Golf Course as the Clovis native finished in 18th place with a personal-best in the 10,000-meters of 29:52.
The 49er men's team placed ninth out of 25 teams, tallying 288 points and was the second highest team from the Big West.
Del Toro was the top runner for the women's squad in the 6K meet, crossing the finish line in 19th with a time of 20:49, just missing qualifying for the NCAA Championship by one place and one second.
The LBSU women's team finished in 11th out of 31 teams, collecting 332 points and was the third highest team from the Big West.
"This is a great reflection of our program and our great student-athletes," distance coach Patrick Cunniff said. "To have two of our athletes finish in the top 25 and receive all-region honors is a great accomplishment for them and everyone involved with Long Beach State Cross Country."
