Amy Regan Set to Compete in NCAA Cross Country Championship |

PRESS RELEASE NOVEMBER 16, 2012Regan earned the No. 4 spot out of the Atlantic Region for the NCAA Championship

HOBOKEN, N.J. (November 16, 2012) – On Saturday afternoon in Terre Haute, Ind., freshman Amy Regan (Green Brook, N.J.) will become the first Stevens Institute of Technology cross country student-athlete, men's or women's, to compete in the NCAA Division III National Championship. Regan accomplished more in one fall season at Castle Point than nearly every runner that has come through the Ducks' program.

The freshman earned her way to the championship as the No. 4 runner out of the Atlantic Region, and just one of seven individuals from that region to partake in the title run on Saturday. Regan received all-region honors, another first in Stevens' history, after a ninth place finish (out of 277) at the regional meet in Rochester, N.Y. on November 10. She ran a personal best time by one minute with a mark of 22:19.7 on the 6K course.

Regan also captured the first Empire 8 Conference title in late October and ended the string of dominance by Ithaca College runners at the meet. Up until this year's conference championship, a Bomber competitor had won each of the previous nine races since the inception of the Empire 8.

Out of the eight races for Stevens this fall, Regan finished first amongst Ducks runners on seven different occasions.

Fifty-six total runners, along with 32 teams, will trek around LaVern Gibson Course starting at 12 p.m. The men's portion of the race gets underway at 11 a.m. and the awards ceremony is slated to take place at approximately 1:15 p.m.

Saturday's action can be viewed live via webcast on and live results will be posted on by Delta Timing. More information is also available on Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology's website, who is co-hosting the championship with the city of Terre Haute.
