Beaumont alumna Emily Infeld takes 

NCAA national runner-up finish, 

her second for Georgetown  

WASHINGTON - On a rainy night in Des Moines, Iowa, Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) added her second NCAA Runner Up finish to her repertoire this year. Once again, the BIG EAST Conference took one and two as Infeld finished second with a time of 15:38.23, a new school record. The third night of the four-day championships held at Drake Stadium saw another familiar race between BIG EAST competitors Infeld and Villanova's Sheila Reid who won the event with a time of 15:37.50, less than a second faster than Infeld.

Running an incredibly smart race, Infeld stayed back for the majority of the race remaining in the top half of the runners through 3,000 meters. With 1,200 meters to go, Infeld made a solid move on the outside staying in fourth place. With 800 meters to go, Infeld kept the company of Reid and Oregon's Jordan Hasay as the trio separated themselves from the remainder of the field. On bell lap, Infeld stayed inside on the first turn but got boxed in on the back straight forcing her to take the outside on the final turn, passing Hasay on the outside. With the race coming down to Reid and Infeld yet again, Infeld came up on the straight but had started her stride early whereas Reid could start her kick down the final straightaway


Her second-place time of 15:38.23 bests her previous PR by more than 17 seconds (15:55.50) and is a new school record, faster than Suzanne Girard's record set in 1984 (15:45.86).

"Finishing as a top 10 all around cross country and track program is quite an honor," Director Pat Henner said. "Our coaching staff and Hoya athletes worked hard all year long, and it is nice to see this effort recognized."

The Blue & Gray put itself in prime position for the final year standings with a fourth-place finish at the 2010 NCAA Cross Country Championships highlighted by seven-time All-American Emily Infeld's NCAA Runner-Up finish, timing in at 20:09.2 over the 6,000-meter race, a mere 2.3 seconds behind Villanova's Sheila Reid, the closest race in event history. 

The University Heights, Ohio, native led a quartet of Hoyas to All-America honors with sophomore Emily Jones (Harvard, Mass./Bromfield) earning All-America status after her first season of eligibility in cross country with a 29th-place finish (20:42.3). 

Renee Tomlin (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City) earned her first All-America honor in cross country as she finished 32nd overall (20:46.3) while Madeline Chambers (Rocky River, Ohio/Magnificat) garnered her first All-America nod with a 36th-place finish (20:47.6)

Now a seven-time All-American, Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) posted her NCAA Runner-Up finish this year as she ran a school-record 15:38.23 to take second behind Villanova's Sheila Reid (15:37.50). This is her seventh All-America honor and her first recognition to the First Team since the change that occurred with 2011 indoor season.

Renee Tomlin's (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City) fourth-place finish solidifies her career on the Hilltop as a four-time All-American, with her final honor coming as a First Team All-American.

 She timed in at 4:16.17 for fourth place in the women's 1,500-meter run, an even where two fellow Hoyas earned All-America honors. Rachel Schneider (Dover, N.H./St. Thomas Aquinas) is now a three-time All-American as she earned second team honors for her performance in the event. Madeline Chambers joins her with the second team honors and was one of just 43 freshmen in the competition to received first or second team honors.
