Last time out
Two weeks ago, the Salisbury women earned a fourth-place finish at the Capital Athletic Conference championships while the men took fifth. Ashley Mazer paced the women with her ninth-place finish, as the Sea Gulls put their top five runners into the top 21 positions in the women's race. On the men's side it was Conner Masteran who led the way, with a fourth-place finish. Salisbury's top five men's runners placed in the top 34 spots overall.
Last year at the regional
Also run in Pennsylvania last season, the men earned an 11th-place finish, among 50 teams. Masteran had the top time for Salisbury among runners who are back for the 2018 season, placing 98th among 365 student-athletes. The women also finished 11th, with current senior Carly Sniffen Salisbury's top returner in last year's race, placing 58th overall.
Climbing into the top 10
The Sea Gulls will look to break back into the top 10 in the region this year. The men last finished in the top 10 in the regional two years ago, placing seventh in the regional also hosted by DeSales. The last time the women's team placed in the top 10 was in 2007, when the team posted an eighth-place finish.
Strong in the CAC
With their performances at the CAC championships, four Sea Gulls earned all-conference honors. Masteran's fourth-place finish landed him on the first team while sophomore Mason Kimbell took 13th to pick up second-team honors. Mazer and freshman Catie Cambon were each on the women's second team as Cambon placed 14th.
Qualifying teams and runners will advance to the NCAA cross country championship on Saturday, November 17 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
