Carl Albert State College Cross Country teams competed in the second annual NJCAA Region Cross Country Championship hosted by the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain at the Lions Club disc golf course in Mena, AR on October 12.
CASC freshman, Alayna Fielder, placed 3rd in the women’s division with a time of 22:23.
In the fall of 2017, CASC was the first community college in Oklahoma and Region II to establish a NJCAA cross country team. Since then, other regional colleges have followed CASC’s example and established a cross country program including Connors State College, Redlands Community College, and National Park College.
“I am extremely proud of each of our athletes,” said Aaron Emberton, CASC Cross Country Head Coach. “The time and effort given by our team members is evident in our measured improvement from meet to meet. Region II is a strong division, and I am proud to have both CASC teams, men and women, place third at the regional meet.”
