PRINCETON, N.J. (11/14/13) - The Princeton men's cross country team will race in the 2013 NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional on Friday, Nov. 15. The event is hosted by Lehigh in Bethlehem Pa. The men's 10k race begins at noon.

The top two teams from each regional will automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships. In addition, 13 at-large teams will be selected. Thirty-six individuals automatically qualify by being one of the top four regional finishers not on an advancing team, with two additional individuals chosen by the committee.

The Tigers took third at Regionals the last two years. They will contend with Georgetown who has won seven of the last eight Regionals, but are the third-team in the rankings this year. Princeton is the top-ranked team in the region and is No. 15 in the nation. They are followed by No. 20 Villanova.

Princeton returns three of its four all-region runners for last year in seniors Chris Bendtsen, Alejandro Arroyo Yamin and Tyler Udland. The trio finished 3-5-6 at Regionals last year and are primed to be the top three Tigers again this year. A junior trio of Sam Pons, Matt McDonald and Eddie Owens will bolster the scoring.

 

Princeton has been in the NCAA Championships as a team 13 times and had its highest finish last year as the Tigers finished 11th.
