Kinsella Finishes 4th, Men 7th at NCAA Championships!

Post by Stonehouse on Mon Nov 24, 2008 12:19 pm

Still waiting for full results, but it was a record-breaking day for the Pilot harriers. David Kinsella placed fourth - the highest finish by a Pilot ever - and the team placed 7th, tied for the best finish in school history.

What a great season by the Pilots!!! Congrats!

Kinsella is absolutely amazing. when i talked to him this past week, he stated that his goal all season was to finish better than last year (7th) but he had to re-work his goals due to the food poisoning incident / night in the hospital last week. He was saying he would like to be in the top 10 but wasn't too sure how his body would respond. To take fourth is amazing. and alfred passing 17 people in the last 3k. thats impressive. as a former runner, when you get to that last part of the race when the pressure is on, its all mental, tricking your mind into thinking you have a lot more to give. awesome job all around. i'm already excited for next season. hopefully we can keep improving.

4th for an individual result is huge!

Team taking 7th also huge... and only 7 seconds from the 5th place team...

With U Oregon men taking first with Rupp 1st individually...

And U Oregon women taking second...

What a big day for all of Oregon in XC!
