WINGATE, N.C. -- The Catawba cross country teams both posted top 10 finishes at the 2019 NCAA II Southeast Region Cross Country Championships that were held on Saturday morning at the Wingate Cross Country Course. The Catawba Indian men placed sixth, equaling its second best regional finish. The women took ninth place.

Freshman Matthew Fowler became just the second men’s runner to break 33 minutes in a 10k, clocking in at 32:30 for a 25th-place finish. He was 16 seconds off the record set by Christian Crifasi in 2011. Kyle Rhodes was next in a time of 33:16 (34th) and then Ethan Bemis at 33:29 (41st). The top four men’s finishers join six others in breaking 34 minutes and all seven ran top 25 all-time times.

Hannah Mercer led the Catawba women, placing 12th with a time of 22:49. That was just seven seconds off her school record 6k mark set earlier this season. Behind Mercer was freshman Madison Lowery, who was 35th at 23:22 and Christina D’Amelio, who posted a time of 23:40 and was 45th.

Fowler and Mercer earned All-Southeast Region honors.
