ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –  The Vincennes University men’s and women’s cross country teams are both nationally ranked and coming off NJCAA Region 24 team titles heading into the NJCAA Division I national championships.

VU is No. 16 in the men’s poll, while the Lady Blazers are No. 25 in the women’s rankings.

The NJCAA Division I Men’s Cross Country Championship is Nov. 9 at 1 p.m. ET at the University of New Mexico Golf Course – North Course followed by the women’s race. The NJCAA Division I Women’s Cross Country Championship starts at 2 p.m. ET.

“I’m really excited to see what we can do at the national meet,” VU Cross Country Coach Chris Gafner said. “We have been training since the summer to get to this point and we are as prepared as we can be. The race won’t be easy, but I think we are ready to compete at a high level and give our very best efforts.”

The Trailblazers won the team titles at the NJCAA Region 24 Meet on Oct. 25 in Charleston, Illinois. It was the fourth straight regional title for the men’s team. The women’s squad won a regional title for the first time since 2017.
