Duluth, MN (NNCOW.com) --- The University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) women's cross country team will make its fourth national meet appearance on Saturday in Spokane, Wash. at the NCAA Division II Championships.

For the first time in school history, the Bulldogs won their first-ever NCAA II Central Regional Title as well as the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) crown.

UMD's top runner in the conference and region meet was freshman Sam Rivard, but she said everyone on the team has been putting up their best times when it matters the most.
