James Hodges added to NCAA Championship field
At-large selections for the NCAA Cross Country Championships included another Aggie as senior James Hodges was named to the field by the NCAA selection committee on Saturday.
Hodges, who placed 13th in the South Central race, will join teammate Henry Lelei, the South Central champion, in the national meet that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, in Louisville, Kentucky. The race will take place at the E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park starting at 12:15 p.m. (CT).
However, the inclusion of Hodges as an individual at-large selection means the Texas A&M men's team did not receive one of the 13 at-large team selections made by the committee. The Aggies placed third in the South Central region behind Texas and Arkansas.
The men's teams receiving at-large selections included Colorado, Duke, Indiana, Michigan State, New Mexico, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Oregon, Princeton, Syracuse, Tulsa, UCLA and Virginia Tech.
Women's teams earning at-large selections included Arizona, Boston College, Butler, Colorado, Cornell, Florida, Georgia, Harvard, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Toledo, Villanova and Washington.
