Men's cross country runner wins Big Ten honor

After leading the No. 14 Hoosiers to a first overall finish at the Rim Rock Farm Classic in Kansas, senior Jason Crist was named the Big Ten Cross-Country Athlete of the Week.

Crist is the first Hoosier to win the award this season after recording his fastest time of the year at 24:09.2 in this past Saturday's meet to finish third overall. Crist has lead the Hoosiers all season long, placing in the top three of all races IU has competed in thus far.

Going into the meet, Crist said the team’s mindset was to go out, make a statement and win the race, and they did just that. He also said the team wanted to stay relatively together throughout the meet, and the Hoosiers placed all five runners in the top ten.Crist earned First Team All-Big Ten honors last season, but has never won the Big Ten Cross Country Athlete of the Week.

After dropping down to No. 14 in last weeks USTFCCCA rankings, the Hoosiers jumped back up to No. 13 after their impressive performance this weekend. The team was looking forward to making a statement in Kansas to ascend in the rankings, and their lead runner got the credit he deserved on top of that.

The Hoosiers’ next meet will be the Bradley Classic in Peoria, Illinois on Oct. 14, where both teams will look to continue their undefeated streaks of three meets swept.

B1G Championships on BTN @ 11 am ET.  Two points on the line for the Governor's Cup. Go Hoosiers!


The women's 6,000m race is slated to begin at 11:00 a.m. (EST).  

IU will send nine runners to the start line.  The fastest five finishers will contribute to the Hoosier's team score.  Runners six and seven will act as pushers, hoping to add additional points to the opposing scores.
The team will consist of Maggie Allen, Lexa Barrott, Brenna Calder, Corinne Cominator, Haley Harris, Chanli Mundy, Katherine Receveur, Hannah Stoffel and Grace Walther.

A season ago the Hoosiers took ninth at the championships in Chicago.  IU's top finisher was Amanda Behnke.  Chanli Mundy and Corinne Cominator placed 45th and 46th, respectively.  Indiana has not hoisted the Big Ten Championships trophy since going back-to-back in 1989-90. Michelle Dekkers is responsible for the three individual championships, she three-peated from 1988-90.  Dekkers also holds the 5k conference record.  The Hoosiers boast 18 All-Big Ten selections since 1984, the fifth most honorees in the conference. 

The men's race will follow the women's and will be run at approximately noon (EST). 
Mark Chandler, Jeremy Coughler, Eric Claxton, Jason Crist, Kyle Mau, Bryce Millar, Matt Schwartzer, Carl Smith and Ben Veatch will represent the Hoosier men's team.  Crist is a three-time All-Big Ten runner.
Last season, Indiana finished fourth with a score of 112.  Rorey Hunter was the top finisher, taking fourth individually.  Crist took sixth, and is the fastest returning Hoosier.  Smith finished 35th overall, fourth for IU. 
The Hoosier men last topped the Big Ten Championships in the 2013 season.  Zach Mayhew, 2012, was the last individual champion.  Indiana is tied for second with 14 team championships, and second with 16 individual champions.  Since 1984, Indiana has produced 20 First Team All-Big Ten selections, the third most in the conference.

Katherine Receveur capped off her stellar sophomore season with All-America honors. Receveur finished in 11th place to earn the distinction and joins elite company, becoming just the eighth (11 total selections) female runner to earn All-America accolades.

She becomes the first female to earn this honor since Wendi Robinson in 2008.  Her 11th place finish is the highest in the NCAA Championships for an IU runner since three-time All-American Michelle Dekkers finished third in 1989.

Receveur's sophomore campaign finished on a high note.  In her final three races she earned First-Team All-Big Ten for her runner-up finish at Minnesota, All-Region for her third place effort in Madison and All-America honors. 

Jason Crist joined Receveur in the All-America circle, finishing 38th in the men's 10k race.  The last male runner to earn this honor was Zach Mayhew in 2012.  Crist is the 19th (28 total selections) male runner in Indiana team history to earn All-America.

Crist could not have ended his cross country career any better.  He earned All-Big Ten honors for the fourth consecutive year after a top eight finish in the Big Ten Championships. He followed that up with a sixth place finish in the Regional meet in Madison.

The last time Indiana has boasted multiple runners with All-America distinctions in the same season was 2005 when Jessica Gall and Sean Jefferson both captured All-American status.

With the 2016 cross country season in the books, IU will now gear up for the track season, which begins on December 9th with the Hoosier Open.
