COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Sophomore Justin Domangue posted one of the top regional finishes in school history to highlight UTA’s efforts at the season-ending NCAA South Central Regional Cross Country Championships on Friday morning at Texas A&M.
Domangue placed 11th individually, which was three spots shy of the best finish in school history. He was just five positions, and a total of nine seconds, outside of qualifying for the NCAA Championships as an individual, something that only five UTA men have ever accomplished.
The Alvarado, Texas, product completed the 10k circuit in a time of 30:14.9 to become a two-time All-South Central Region selection. Last year, Domangue took 19th at the race, which was held in Fayetteville, Ark.
On the women’s side, Tori Shelton closed out her stellar career by placing 31st with a 6k time of 20:52.1. Shelton narrowly missed becoming an all-region pick by six spots in the standings (11 seconds).
As a team, the UTA men took 10th among 24 teams with 255 points. Brady Steele and Tyler Forde each placed among the top 50. Steele came in 44th with a time of 31:26.3, while Forde was one position and four seconds behind (31:30.2) his teammate.
The women finished 18th as a team with 413 total points. Astrid Rosvall was the second Maverick across the line with a time of 21:48.4, which was good for 74th place.
Macey Beazley (82nd, 21:59.4) and Madeleine Rowe (85th, 22:00.9) followed closely behind, as UTA had four runners in the top half of the 176-person field. Bailey Balmer (151st, 23:24.7) was the final point scorer for the Mavericks.
