TEMPE – Junior Lindsay Prescott and senior Ben Engelhardt both posted Top 20 finishes on Saturday to lead the Arizona State University cross country team at the NCAA Pre-National Meet, which was held at the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course in Terre Haute, Ind., the site of the 2010 NCAA Champoionships later this season. The competition was the final event of the ‘regular’ season with the championship portion of the year set to start in two weeks.

As a team, the women scored 3385 points and finished 11th overall in the ‘white’ race while the men tallied 472 points and took 19th in the ‘white’ race. On the women’s side, the Top 5 teams included race winner #5 Georgetown (100), #9 Colorado (123), #17 Stanford (125), #12 Stony Brook (216) and #26 Minnesota (241) while the men’s Top 5 included #16 Oklahoma (106), #19 BYU (138), #4 Colorado (140), #8 Portland (146) and #13 NC State (177).

For the second meet in a row, Prescott and Engelhardt were the top finishers for the Sun Devils. Prescott covered the 6,000m course in 20:46.5 to finish 17th overall while Engelhardt ran the 8,000m course in 24:10.7 to place 18th. Prescott’s placement tied four other Sun Devils for the 14th-best finish in program history at the meet while Engelhardt’s showing was the ninth-best all-time in program history and made him just the 10th different ASU man to finish among the Top 20 at the NCAA Pre-National Meet.

Two other women competed in the race, which were Karlee Owens (167th, 22:24.2) and Kauren Tarver (215th, 22:55.1).

Engelhardt had a pair of Top 75 finishers behind him in the race for ASU, which included Darius Terry (63rd, 24:43.7) and Nick Happe (74th, 24:49.4), while the Top 5 scorers for the team were rounded out by Dylan Hatcher (155th, 25:38.4) and Daniel Lovell (162nd, 25:43.2).
