RICHMOND, Va. (Nov. 14, 2011) - James Madison's Katie Harman and William & Mary's Elaina Balouris have earned All-Region honors as announced by the USTFCCCA on Monday.

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) recognized 450 athletes that earned All-Region awards for cross country in Division I following this weekend's NCAA Regional Championships. Athletes of member schools that finished in the top 25 individually at one of the nine regional sites earned the honor.

Harman finished 17th at the NCAA Southeast Regional meet in Louisville, Ky. She led all JMU runners finishing the six kilometer course in 20:51.1. Harman was also named to the All-Colonial Athletic Association team and earned Most Outstanding Performer after an individual and team first-place finish at the CAA Championship meet two weeks ago. This marks the first time in her career that Harman has garnered All-Region honors and is her third career All-CAA honor.

Balouris earned a ninth place finish at the same location, the NCAA Southeast Regional. The sophomore posted a time of 20:36.8 on the 6K course. Balouris' top-10 showing was the best for a Tribe runner since All-American Ali Henderson finished seventh in 2003.
