BUFFALO — Hannah Reinhardt continued her stellar women’s cross country season Friday, as the senior secured the UAlbany program’s first-ever individual title at the NCAA Northeast Regional Championships.
Competing at the University at Buffalo, Reinhardt qualified for the national championships with a winning mark of 19:28.4 in the 6K race. That personal-best time was nearly three full seconds clear of the event’s runner-up, and lowered Reinhardt’s previous school-record time in the event from 19:44.2.
Reinhardt is UAlbany’s first national qualifier since Silva Del Fava, who accomplished that feat in 2013. This year’s national championships take place in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Nov. 23.
As a team, the UAlbany women finished in 18th place at the event, while the UAlbany men finished in 28th. Niskayuna High School graduate Charlie Ragone led the UAlbany men with a 61st-place finish in 30:06.2 for the 10K course.
Also at the event, both Siena squads finished in 25th place. Leading the Siena women was sophomore Olivia Lomascolo — a Shenendehowa High School graduate — with a 106th-place finish in 21:29.3, while senior Evans Kibet finished 51st in 29:55.3.
