LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Senior Alexandra Lucki completed her standout cross country career as a Terp Saturday as she raced in the NCAA Championship Meet at E.P. "Tom" Sawyer Park in Louisville, Ky. The Toronto, Ontario native finished 163rd in the field of 255, crossing the line in 21:11.6 in her first ever NCAA Championship.

Lucki became the first Maryland runner since the 2011 season to advance to the NCAA Championship meet and just the second Terp to make the meet since 1988.  

She finished as Maryland’s No. 1 runner in every meet she competed this season, and was the No. 1 runner for the Terps in seven straight meets dating back to the 2016 campaign.  

New Mexico captured the team title with a team score of 90, followed by San Francisco (105) and Colorado (139). New Mexico's Ednah Kurgat won the individual title with a time of 19:19.5. 

Lucki earned All-Region honors for the second consecutive season with her performance while posting the best-ever finish of a Maryland runner at the event on record.
