uk trackb 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/22/13) - Kentucky cross country senior Cally Macumber will return to the NCAA Championship for the second straight year on Saturday at 1:15 p.m. ET on Indiana State’s Wabash Family Sports Center course.

The meet will be broadcast streaming live on NCAA.com, and live results will also be available.
 
Macumber earned an automatic bid to the 6,000-meter NCAA Championship by finishing second individually at the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships last Friday. In the Regional race Macumber made up a 15-meter gap within the final 50 meters, passing two runners in the process.

Macumber finished sixth at the National Championship meet last season, and earned All-America honors in the process.

With the result last Saturday, Macumber was named to the All-Southeast Region Team for the second straight season. She was also named All-SEC for the second consecutive campaign earlier this month.

Macumber has already seen the NCAA Championship course, having covered it during October’s Pre-National Invitational.

The top 40 individual finishers will earn All-America honors. Macumber is a senior in cross country, has exhausted her eligibility indoors and will be a senior for the outdoor track and field season.
