Dunsmoor selected to all-region cross country team

NEW ORLEANS, La. - The 2007 Division II Women's All-Region Cross Country teams were announced today by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. CSU-Pueblo senior Lauren Dunsmoor was one of 15 runners from the North Central Region, which includes the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, to be selected to the team.

Dunsmoor has won three of the five events in which she has competed this fall, finishing a very close second in the RMAC Championships behind fellow all-region honoree, Adams State's Brittany Somers.

Dunsmoor qualified for nationals, as well, with a seventh place finish at the North Central Regionals held in Vermillion, S.D. last weekend.

The Adams State Grizzlies placed six athletes on the North Central All-Region team, followed by the Tampa Spartans who placed five athletes on the South All-Region team. Adams State won their fifth regional title while Tampa picked up their second regional title.

Harding (South), Missouri Southern State (South Central), Cal State Los Angeles (West), Seattle Pacific (West), Lees-McRae (Southeast), and Stonehill (East) each placed four athletes on All-Region teams.

The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference led all Division II conferences as PSAC athletes accounted for all 15 spots on the East All-Region team. The Northeast-10 was a close second with 13 athletes, while Conference Carolinas and the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association each had 11 athletes.

All-Region honors are given to an athlete who finishes in the top 15 at their respective regional meet and whose team is a member of the USTFCCCA.
