INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced Tuesday that the University at Buffalo has been selected to host the NCAA Cross Country Northeast Regionals for 2018 and 2019. The event will be held at Audubon Golf Course, just minutes from the North Campus.
The University at Buffalo last hosted the meet in 2011, which was the first time the race had ever been held outside of Connecticut, Boston, or New York City. The Northeast region is the largest in the NCAA with over 42 teams competing. The meet will be held at Audubon Golf Course.
"We are very excited to host the NCAA Division I Northeast Regional, which brings in the very best runners in the NCAA," said head coach Vicki Mitchell. "I have designed a course to provide an exceptional experience for the student-athletes as well as the spectators. And, we are able to showcase the beautiful Buffalo area to the visiting teams and families. For our student-athletes, it provides the opportunity to compete at the NCAA qualifier at home, with fan support."
The races will be held on November 9, 2018 and November 15, 2019.
