KENOSHA, Wis. – The Rockford College Cross Country teams continued their strong 2011 seasons this past Saturday at the Northern Athletics Conference Championships in Kenosha, Wis.  Both the men’s and women’s teams placed 6th at the meet.  

The Regents women’s team continues to be lead by its strong sophomore class.  Sophomore Genesis Cerrato (Las Vegas, Nev./ Valley) continued one of the best seasons in the program’s history finishing 2nd in the meet.  That is the highest finish ever in the programs short history at the Conference Championships, and it earned her a spot on the First Team All-NAC for the second straight season.  Sophomore Barbara Duffy (Tampico, Ill./ Prophetstown) was selected as Honorable Mention All-NAC for the second consecutive year.  Duffy finished 20th at the meet improving three spots from last years 23rd finish.      

The men’s team got solid performances from its two seniors and its standout freshman.  Senior Victor Reyes (Winthrop Harbor, Ill./ Benton Harbor) finished in the top 10 for the 4th straight year.  Reyes finished 9th earning him a spot on the First Team All-NAC for the fourth time in his collegiate career.  Fellow senior Tyler Mendenhall (Prophetstown, Ill./ Prophetstown) recorded a 27th place finish and received Honorable Mention All-NAC.  Mendenhall has now earned Honorable Mention All-NAC all four years he has been at Rockford College.  Freshman standout Tim Lydy (Germantown, Wis./ Germantown) finished 15th for the Regents.  Lydy’s finish resulted in him earning the top spot on the All-NAC Honorable Mention team.

Five of the fifteen Regents that participated in the event were either named to the All-Northern Athletics Conference First Team or received Honorable Mention.  In total, seven Regents received some type of all-conference award.
