College Report: Week 1 Indoors Brandon Miles Dec 5, 2005

I will be attempting to do a weekly report of the college scene in the state of Virginia with a sprinkling of news on former Virginian high school preps competing in college outside of the Commonwealth. Feel free to contact me for any omissions of noteworthy performances, especially those of individuals who compete outside of Virginia collegiately, so we can get them the recognition they deserve. This week was the first week of the college indoor season with several in-state schools getting their feet wet in competition. At the Liberty Kickoff held at Liberty University\'s one-year old Toslma Track Center, the home team Liberty wasted no time in getting individuals qualified for possible NCAA Nationals competition with distance runner Josh McDougal and multi-event star Brandon Hoskins hitting NCAA provisional qualifying marks at their home meet.

Mary Washington men and women top D3 program at Greensboro Brandon Miles Sep 24, 2005

At the Greensboro Invitational, three of the top tier Virginia Division III college programs competed with the University of Mary Washington, Washington & Lee University, and Lynchburg College (men only). The Mary Washington men and women both finished first in the Division III team standings at the meet held at Hagan Stone Park in Greensboro. Mary Washington sophomore Allison Hazlett won the women\'s 5K race in a time of 18:43 to lead the squad to a narrow two point margin of victory over the Washington & Lee women. The Mary Washington men (32 pts) won by eight points over the Washington & Lee men (40 pts), but the Generals did run without top runner and defending NCAA South/Southeast Regional champion Nathan Johnson.

Christopher Newport University, Lynchburg College, and Washington & Lee University were all in attendance at this year\'s race. The Christopher Newport University women (2nd, 112 pts) and Washington & Lee University men (3rd, 120 pts) came away as the top finishing teams, while CNU senior Emily Low (20:11 5K) and Washington & Lee senior Nathan Johnson (27:28 5mile, 4th overall) were the top Virginian finishers.

Virginia's Division III Men Cross Country Preview Brandon Miles Aug 7, 2003

The top division III cross country program in the state last fall was Lynchburg College by a hair. While Emory College (Atlanta, Georgia) dominated last year's NCAA DIII Southeast regional cross country meet, Lynchburg (87 points) finished second in last November's race as they were two points ahead of fellow Virginia school, Christopher Newport University. This year's battle for state supremacy seems to be once again a two team fight between the Hornets and Captains.
