Washington senior Jason Fayant today ran to a sixth-place finish at the 2001 NCAA Western Regional meet at Randolph North Golf Course in Tuscon, Ariz. Fayant's finish - the best by a Husky men's runner at the regional meet since 1992 - led the men's squad to 140 team points and a seventh-place finish. The Husky women, buoyed by four top-25 finishes, placed fourth with 115.

Fayant, who bested his 10,000-meter personal record by over 30 seconds, crossed the line in 31 minutes, 12 seconds, less than half a minute behind this year's champion, Donald Sage of Stanford, who finished in 30:44. Sage and teammate Grant Robinson, who placed second two weeks after capturing the Pac-10 Championship in Scottsdale, lifted the Cardinal to the team title with 37 points. Portland was second witn 91, while Oregon placed third in 112.

In the women's race, freshman Lisa Gibbs carried the torch for the Huskies, placing 11th in 21:51. Close behind the freshman was junior Kate Bradshaw, who finished 19th in 22:05, senior Sabrina Monro, 24th in 22:09, and Gibbs' twin sister, Jamie, who crossed the line 25th in 2210. Arizona's Tara Chaplin earned the individual title in 20:41, leading her team to second-place finish behind the Cardinal.

The top-two teams in each race earned the region's automatic bids to the NCAA Championships, Nov. 19 in Greenville, S.C. While only two teams from each side qualify automatically, it is expected that several of the region's other top squads will receive at-large selections based on win-loss records.

Complete results of both races are available at the official site of University of Washington athletics, www.gohuskies.com.
