INDIANAPOLIS — After placing third at the NCAA Mountain Region Championships on Friday, November 12, the second-ranked Colorado men's cross country team earned one of the 13 at-large bids to advance to the NCAA Championships, Saturday, November 20, in Tallahassee, Fla.

They will join the CU women, who qualified on Friday with a runner-up finish at the regional championship. The women are advancing to their 13th consecutive trip to NCAAs and have made it to 29 of the last 30 championships.
