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.

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.
Three of the state\'s top division III programs in the state went head to head at the NYU Invitational held at the historic Van Courtland Park course in New York City.

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.

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.
