NEW ORLEANS --- All-Region honors for the 2019 NCAA Division III Cross Country season were recognized on Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) following Regional Championships Saturday.

A total of 280 men and 280 women from 155 different institutions earned the distinction by finishing among the top-35 runners at one of eight regional sites across the country.

Peter Weiss and Trevor Wilber were each named All-Region after helping the Bruins capture their second consecutive NWC Championship and earn a seventh-place finish at NCAA Regionals in Claremont, Calif.

Sophomore runner Weiss ran a time of 26:37.3 to place 32nd at the Regional and freshman Wilber came in 35th at 26:43.4. The pair are the first two runners for Fox to be honored as All-Region by USTFCCCA since interim coach Bryant Quinn earned the honor in the 2015 season as a Bruin.

"The men's and women's teams ran extremely well to finish out the season," said John Smith, the Bruins' Director of Track & Field & Cross Country. "I couldn't be more proud of Peter Weiss and Trevor Wilber for representing the team with their all-region finish. So much hard work and encouragement going on with this team, it was awesome to see it pay off and for these two men be rewarded."
