Penn State cross country: Nittany Lion women earn NCAA bid

Penn State was handed one of 13 at-large bids to run at the NCAA Championships.

The Nittany Lion women, who finished third at the Mid-Atlantic Regional on Saturday, join a dozen other at-large teams and 18 automatic qualifiers at the national meet in Terre Haute, Ind., on Nov. 23. It is their fifth straight NCAA bid and 18th in program history.

The men’s team will send just one representative — Matt Fischer finished fourth at Saturday’s regional race.
