Maria Carrillo Alumna Leanne Fogg Qualifies for 2011 NCAA XC Championships!

Exciting news over the weekend at the NCAA Western Regional Qualifying Meet at Stanford - Cal Poly senior and Maria Carrillo grad Leanne Fogg qualified for the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships in Terra Haute, Indiana on November 21.  Coach Greg will be catching a flight directly after the NCS Meet in Hayward to watch the meet live!

Only 4 runners qualified "at large" (individual runners not qualifying with a team) from the Western Region.  Leanne steadily moved up at least 10 spots in the last 2000 meters of the race to finish 2nd among at large runners.  By finishing 16th overall, Leanne became the first Cal Poly woman ever to qualify for the NCAA Division I championships. The race was won by Oregon's Jordan Hasay.  Click here to see highlight video (you can see Leanne at 1:50 mark).

Leanne currently holds the #6 spot on the all-time list of MCHS runners at the Spring Lake Course with a PR of 18:06 in 2004.
