PRINCETON, N.J. (11/10/11) - The Princeton men's cross country team will race in the 2011 NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional on Saturday, Nov. 12. The event is hosted by University of Maryland-Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, Md. The men's 10k race begins at 12 p.m.

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.

Princeton is the reigning regional champion having won the race at Penn State one year ago. Seniors Brian Leung and Donn Cabral finished 4-5 with matching times of 30:11. The pair went on to earn All-America status, guiding Princeton to a 12th-place finish at nationals. Cabral has been Princeton's first guy across the line all season, including a third-place finish at Heps two weeks ago. Senior Peter Maag has exploded this season, working up from No. 4 to 3 to the second man at Heps. Sophomores Tyler Udland and Chris Bendtsen have been productive scorers this year. A trio of freshmen, Eddie Owens, Sam Pons and Matt McDonald have all been scorers this year and could challenge for one of those final scorer spots for the team.

The Tigers are ranked No. 9 in the nation and has been No. 1 in the region all season. Princeton's biggest threats at the regional include Villanova, ranked 13th, Georgetown, who leaped into the rankings last week at No. 23.

Princeton has been in the NCAA Championships as a team 11 times and had its highest finish, 12th, last season.
