Titan in the NCAAs!!!

Postby Titan Andrew » Fri Nov 09, 2018 4:04 pm

Thought this warranted its own thread on the main board - cross country athlete Ben Kendell finished 2nd place at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional this afternoon. This race is comprised of every D-1 school in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin which contain schools from the B1G, Big East, and ACC, among others and is traditionally regarded as the most difficult NCAA Regional. Due to his performance, Ben automatically qualifies for the NCAA championship race. This is the highest finish by a Titan at the Regional ever and the first time a Titan male cross country runner qualified for NCAAs. Congrats Ben!

In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

That's awesome!

My 14 year old son runs cross country and I have a deep appreciation for the sport and student athletes. He has set a goal of winning the 14U division at this year's Detroit Turkey Trot 5K. Last year he was 5th in that division.

Do you know what Ben's time was?

31:11 for a 10k where he set the pace for the whole race.

I ran in HS. 70+ mile weeks in the summers. Brutal sport, and now that my son is running I tell him it’s the fairest sport in the world. No one ever “gets lucky” and wins a XC race. Ben is a legit super athlete. He won the National Catholic Invite this year and beat some really good runners.

Ben has been a track standout for four years (he took a year off to redshirt). Even better, his sister Claire is a sophomore at UDM and a standout distance runner, too.
