ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - St. Norbert College finished in 12th place at the NCAA Division III Cross Country Midwest Regional hosted by Augustana College at Saukie Golf Course.

The Green Knights totaled 338 points for their 12th-place finish. Washington (Mo.) was the team champion with 24 points. UW-Oshkosh's Christy Cazzola was the individual champion in 21 minutes 31 seconds. A total of 264 runners competed.

Mackenzie Weber finished in 16th place to lead St. Norbert, finishing with a time of 22:35. Weber's chance of running at next weekend's NCAA Division III Championship is dependent on how many teams from the Midwest Regional are selected by the national committee.
