BETHLEHEM, Pa. (11/15/13) - The Princeton men's cross country team was the runner up at the 2013 NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional and earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships.

No. 15 Princeton edged Georgetown by three points, 60-63, and No. 20 Villanova won the meet with 34 points. Penn followed in fourth place and Penn State was fifth.

Seniors Tyler Udland and Alejandro Arroyo Yamin went 6-7 as the top Tigers across the line, finishing two seconds apart at 29:49 and 29:51. Junior Sam Pons pushed for 11th place at 30:11. Senior Chris Bendtsen clocked a 30:20 to take 17th and the final scorer was junior Eddie Owens in 19th place at 30:25.
