Taylor’s Cho and Harden Claim NAIA All-American Honors

 

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The 2017 NAIA Cross Country National Championships were hosted on Saturday at the Fort Vancouver Historic Site, with the Crossroads League sending 35 student-athletes from nine programs to compete at the event.

 

Taylor and Indiana Wesleyan were the only schools to compete as teams, as each institution sent their men’s and women’s teams. TU claimed fifth on the women’s side and 17th in the men’s standings, while IWU finished 14th on the men’s side and 21st in the women’s standings.

 

Taylor’s Stephen Cho and Sarah Harden were the top individual performers for the league, as each finished inside the top-30 in their respective race to claim NAIA All-American honors. Both runners turned in personal-best times, as Cho crossed in 28th at 25:19 and Harden finished at 18:00 to take 23rd.

 

In addition to the 28 athletes competing for Taylor and Indiana Wesleyan, seven other individuals competed at the event from Marian, Goshen and Spring Arbor. MU’s Lucas Sullivan narrowly missed on an All-American effort by crossing in 32nd on the men’s side, while SAU’s Victoria Harper finished in 87th to pace the individual competitors in the women’s race.
