INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Freshman Lucy Conroy (Mt. Vernon, Iowa/Mt. Vernon) has earned an at-large bid to the NCAA National Championships. Conroy's selection marks the sixth time a female Kohawk has run at the NCAA Championships.
Conroy became the eighth female in school history to earn all-region honors at the NCAA Regionals on Saturday, as she placed 10th. Conroy was the highest finishing runner from the Iowa Conference, as she turned in a time of 22:47.0. It was the seventh fastest time in school history and the fifth fastest time by a Kohawk in NCAA Regional history. Conroy became the first Kohawk to finish in the top 10 since Ashley Schnell's eighth place finish in 2008 and the first all-region runner from Coe since Keelie Finnel in 2011.
The NCAA National Championships are Saturday. The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh will host the championships, Nov. 21, at Lake Breeze Golf Course in Winneconne, Wis. The women's race will begin at 11 a.m. A link for live video will be available at CoeAthletics.com.
