    Cally Macumber to Race at NCAA Cross Country Championship

    Nov. 22, 2013

    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Kentucky cross country senior Cally Macumber will return to the NCAA Championship for the second straight year on Saturday at 1:15 p.m. ET on Indiana State’s Wabash Family Sports Center.

    The meet will be broadcast streaming live on NCAA.com, and live results will also be available.

    Macumber earned an automatic bid to the 6,000-meter NCAA Championship by finishing second individually at the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships last Friday. In the Regional race Macumber made up a 15-meter gap within the final 50 meters, passing two runners in the process.

    Macumber finished sixth at the National Championship meet last season, and earned All-America honors in the process.

    With the result last Saturday, Macumber was named to the All-Southeast Region Team for the second straight season. She was also named All-SEC for the second consecutive campaign earlier this month.

    Macumber has already seen the NCAA Championship course, having covered it during October’s Pre-National Invitational.

    The top 40 individual finishers will earn All-America honors. Macumber is a senior in cross country, has exhausted her eligibility indoors and will be a senior for the outdoor track and field season.
