STILLWATER, Okla. (11/19/22) – Another strong cross country season came to a close Saturday for Arkansas State, as Jaybe Shufelberger competed in the NCAA Championships in Stillwater, Okla.
The Topeka, Kan., native clocked a time of 21:04.3 in the women’s 6K, finishing 168th overall. Her appearance at the national meet marked just the third time an A-State women’s runner competed at the NCAA Championships, as she joined Kristina Aubert (2012, 2013) as the second woman in program history to race in the event.
Shufelberger’s first season at A-State also included an all-region finish at the South Central Regional Championships, while also finishing seventh at the Sun Belt Conference Championships to earn second-team all-league honors.
A-State has now had three consecutive years with a participant in either the women’s 6K or men’s 10K.
Arkansas State now turns its attention to indoor track and field season, slated to begin Friday-Saturday, Dec. 9-10, at the Boo Rogers Combined Events and Crimson and Gold Invitational in Pittsburg, Kan.
