Landry, who finished 38th at the NCAA Cross Country Championship in November for All-America honors in his rookie season, raced in the Junior Men's 8,000m and clocked a 25:33.2 for fourth place. Also earning All-Southeast and All-CAA honors in cross country in 2004, Landry has already had a fine track campaign after qualifying for the IC4A Indoor Championships in his debut in the 5,000m, clocking a 14:26.28.
Fellow freshman Dave Mock (Johnstown, PA), an All-East competitor at the 2004 IC4A Cross Country Championship, also competed in the race and had a strong showing. Timing a 25:59.8 for 8,000m, Mock claimed eighth place, just two spots shy of qualifying for the World Championships.
Newberry, a proven national-level performer in her post-collegiate career, competed in the Women's Open 8,000m and clocked a 28:01.2 to claim fourth in the race. She will compete at her second consecutive World Cross Country Championship after finishing 25th, as the second-highest American, in 2004. Ranked 10th nationally in the 10,000m to end 2004, Newberry qualified for the finals of both the 5,000m and 10,000m at the 2004 Olympic Trials.
