Hogan to compete at NCAA Championships Monday

Senior women’s cross-country runner Megan Hogan will compete in the NCAA Cross-Country National Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., Monday.

Hogan qualified for the race by finishing third at NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships in State College, Pa., Nov. 13. The senior finished the 6k course in 19:58 seconds, 38 seconds better than her time on the same course from earlier this season.

Hogan also won the Atlantic 10 women’s cross-country individual championship in late October and was named the A-10 Student Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive season.

The GW senior will be making her third appearance at the NCAA Championships when she takes the course Monday. She was the first ever GW runner to qualify for the race when she ran there in 2008. In 2009, Hogan rebounded from being tripped early in the race to finish 27th out of 255 competitors, making her the first ever Colonials runner to be named an All-American.
