Hooks, Lopez Close Out Season at Regional Championships

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – While most of the American University cross country team closed the 2016 season at the Patriot League Championships two weeks ago, sophomore Adriana Hooks and freshman Arianna Lopez took to the line on final time on Friday for the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship.  Hosted by Penn State, the meet serves as the qualifier into the NCAA Championships later this month.

Hooks led the duo with a 73rd place crossing in the field, timing through in 22:12 over 6,000m.  Lopez was not far behind with a new PR of 22:36 to finish 98th overall.

The Eagles now look forward to the start of indoor track season.  For the latest on that schedule, stay tuned to AUEagles.com and follow the team on Twitter @AU_TrackXC.
