Wyoming Cross Country Star Competes at NCAA Championships Saturday

Garrett Zans
University of Wyoming Athletics

After two of the best races of his career, Garrett Zans will represent the University of Wyoming cross country program at the NCAA Championships on Saturday in Terre Haute, Ind. The senior will race the best runners in the nation over a 10-kilometer course at 10 a.m. MT.

A native of Rock Springs, Zans placed fifth at the Mountain West Championships on Nov. 1 to earn All-MW First-Team honors, before crossing the line 14th at the NCAA Mountain Regional last Friday to claim All-Region accolades. He was the fourth individual not on a qualifying team at the regional meet, as he became the first Cowboy to qualify for the national meet since Mark Korir in 2008. He is also the first Wyoming native to run for the Cowboys at the NCAA Championships since Buffalo-native Joe Hall in 2000.

UW head coach Bryan Berryhill said. “Garrett ran neck and neck with guys at the conference meet and the regional meet that will earn All-America honors, so the plan for him on Saturday is to get in the top 50 early and just race his heart out from there.”
