National Cyclocross Champions!

12 01 2012

Mars Hill won the Div. II National Championship last weekend at USA Cycling’s Collegiate Cyclocross Nationals in Madison, Wisconsin. Mariske Strauss won the women’s race, with Laura Rice finishing 7th. Tim Jenkinson finished 2nd in the men’s race, and Corey Davis was 8th. Those top-10 finishes, along with strong performances from Steph Bunnett, Lacey Douglas, and Michael Robinson, brought a decisive victory in the team competition, and also increased MHC’s lead in the overall D2 national team rankings.

Mars Hill celebrates the team championship. Cumberland University takes 2nd and the US Military Academy 3rd.
