INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Committee has announced the participants for the 2011 NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championships.

In order to be eligible to participate in the championships, teams and individuals had to qualify in their respective NCAA regional competitions that were held this past weekend.

All regions automatically qualified two teams of seven student-athletes each. Additional berths were awarded to regions based on the first eight team finishers at the 2010 championships. All regions automatically qualify the top two individuals from non-qualifying teams. In addition, all individual competitors who finish in the top five overall places in their respective regional meet and are not a member of a qualifying team automatically advance to the championships. 

The Great Northwest Athletic Conference and the Spokane Regional Sports Commission will co-host the championships, Nov. 19, at Plantes Ferry Park in Spokane, Washington. The women’s race will begin at 2 p.m. ET followed by the men’s race at 3 p.m. ET.
