MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) recognized 450 athletes that earned All-Region awards for cross country in Division I following this weekend’s NCAA Regional Championships.

This is the third year in a row that Brault has received the honor. She will move on to the NCAA Championships, also for the third year in a row.

“We are all very proud of the distinction given to these young ladies,” coach Sean Cleary says. “This award distinguished them among the elite of our sport.”

The Mountaineers finished with 111 points for fifth out of 31 teams at regionals, while meet host and No. 15 Penn State won the event with 61 points, edging out No. 9 Georgetown, who took second with 63 points.
