NEW ORLEANS—The Virginia men’s cross country team has been tabbed #14 in the latest U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association national rankings, the organization announced Tuesday (Nov. 13).

On the heels of their first NCAA Southeast Regional championship, the Cavaliers moved up seven spots in the final regular season poll.

Graduate student Zach Gates (Fishers, Ind.) finished fourth to lead the men in 29:43.08, while redshirt freshman Kyle King (Yorktown, Va.) crossed the line 10th in 30:02.13.

Junior Thomas Porter (Fredericksburg, Va.) placed 14th in 30:24.73, while grad student Mark Amirault (Walpole, Mass.) and sophomore Drew Paisley (Virginia Beach, Va.) finished 17th and 19th, respectively, to round out the scoring five. The men’s top five finishers all earned All-Southeast Region honors.

The men along with graduate student Catherine White (Roanoke, Va.) will compete at the NCAA Championships Saturday (Nov. 17) at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Ky. The women’s 6K championships will start at noon, while the men’s 10k championship will begin at 1:15 p.m.
