After a two-week layoff, the Kansas cross country teams will compete in their most important meet of the season on
Friday, Nov. 14 at the NCAA Midwest Regional Championships in Peoria, Illinois. The men’s team will look to return to
the NCAA Championships for the first time since 2006, while the women, who last qualified for nationals in 1994, will
try to better last year’s fifth-place finish.
The Jayhawk men will see a strong group travel to Peoria this week, four who will be competing in their third regional
meet. Jacob Morgan turned in a career and all-conference performance with his fifth-place finish at the Big 12
Championships two weeks ago in leading his team to a fifth-place finish. The junior will try to assure that the race will
not be his last of the season and aims to be Kansas’ top finisher for the fourth time this year.
Senior James Wilson and freshman Chris Melgares hope to join Morgan as part of the Jayhawks’ lead pack. Each have
been among KU’s top-three finishers in three outings this year. Wilson will be among the more experienced runners on
the course as he will be running in his fourth regional race.
A group of underclassmen round out the men’s squad in Peoria. Sophomores Tyler Yunk and James Hampton have
both been consistent finishers near the top of the men’s pack and will be joined by freshmen Juan del Azar and Carson
Vickroy.
The men will have one new obstacle to face Friday, which they have yet to encounter in 2014. The group will be
competing at the 10K distance for the first time this year, which is quite a change after running 8K races for the majority
of the season. The starting gun for the 6.25 mile race is slated to go off at 1 p.m.
The KU women will once again send a young, but talented, group to the Regional as none of those scheduled to run this
weekend have competed in more than one Midwest Regional Championship meet; however, five of those were a part of
the squad that took fifth at the regional meet a year ago. Sophomore Nashia Baker has been the women’s leader in four
meets this year and is a candidate to garner all-region honors for the first time in her KU career.
Joining Baker in their second appearance at the NCAA Regional are junior Hayley Francis and sophomores Kelli
McKenna, Courtney Coppinger and Rachel Simon. A tight, well-placed pack will be a necessity if the Jayhawks want an
opportunity to grab one of the coveted at-large bids for the NCAA Championships.
Freshmen Grace Morgan and Alaina Schroeder will each race in their first regional meet after both have put together
solid debut seasons for the Jayhawks. Morgan was a winner already this season at the Bob Timmons Classic and
Schroeder a finisher in the Jayhawks’ top-five in three of the four races in which she’s raced.
Thirty-one teams earn berths to the NCAA Championships, which will be run in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Saturday, Nov.
22. The top two teams from each of the nine regions automatically qualify for the Championships. Another 13 at-large
teams will be added to the field and announced on Monday, Nov. 17. In addition, four individual competitors from each
region, who are not part of qualifying teams, will also earn their way into the Championships field. These individuals
must finish in the top 25 at the regional championship to qualify. Additionally, the NCAA committee will choose two
individuals at large.

JAYHAWK TO WATCH
JAMES WILSON // SR // ABILENE, KAN.
Senior captain James Wilson will look to ensure this weekend’s race will not be
his last in a Kansas cross country uniform when he toes the start line in Peoria.
Wilson has been one of the Jayhawks’ top-two finishers in all but one race he has
competed in this year and will try to improve upon a career-best finish of 27th at
last year’s regional race. He will be one of the more experienced runners in the field
Friday and, with the addition of All-Big 12 performer Jacob Morgan, Wilson could
give Kansas the one-two punch it needs to qualify for its first NCAA Championship
meet since 2006.

JAYHAWK TO WATCH
HAYLEY FRANCIS // JR // LAWRENCE, KAN.
Hayley Francis will again play a vital role for the women’s team at the race this
weekend as she will try to use her veteran leadership to lead the young Jayhawk
squad. The Lawrence native has been a consistent presence in her team’s top-five
this season, which will need to be the case once again if Kansas can break into
the top-five teams in one of the most competitive regions in the nation. The KU
women’s depth has been their biggest asset this season and Francis will look to use
that advantage once again.

•
Head Coach Stanley Redwine has seen at least one man or woman earn All-Region honors in 13 of his 14 years at the helm in Lawrence.
A Kansas men’s team victory would …
•
Be the highest finish at the regional meet for a Stanley Redwine-coached team.
•
Give KU its first Midwest Regional championship.
•
Be the first time a team other than Oklahoma or Oklahoma State has won the Regional meet since 2004.
•
Send the team to the NCAA Championship meet for the 23rd time in program history.
A Kansas women’s team victory would …
•
Be the third Regional title in the women’s history.
•
Send the team to the NCAA Championship meet for the third time in program history.
•
Give the Jayhawks their second win of the season.
An individual Jayhawk victory would …

•
Earn them an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships to be held Nov. 22 in Terre Haute, Indiana
•
Earn them All-Region honors.
•
Make them the third individual winner for KU this season.
Experience vs. Youth…
•
The women’s team returns five runners that competed in at least one NCAA Midwest Regional, including junior Hayley Francis, sophomores Nashia Baker, Courtney Coppinger, Kelli McKenna and Rachel Simon.
• The KU men boast only two runners who will be seeing at least their second Big 12 Championship race, senior James Wilson and sophomore Tyler Yunk.

Region boasts three men’s teams and one women’s squads in the top 30. For the men,
Oklahoma State is currently stationed at fourth in the latest poll. No. 23 Tulsa ranks next,
followed by No. 26 Oklahoma. On the women’s side, No. 5 Iowa State leads the region.
