Two Tabor College runners headline the men’s and women’s preseason Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference all-conference cross-country teams this preseason.
Junior Joel Allen, a three-time all-conference runner, finished second at the KCAC meet last year, and 95th out of 309 at the NAIA Cross County Championships. A Hillsboro native, Allen was Tabor’s top runner in each of its seven meets in 2012.
Junior Garrett Daugherty also made the team after a 13th-place finish at the league meet last season.
Senior Brielle Lund, also a three-time all-conference runner, is the lone Bluejay on the women’s team. She placed 188th at the national meet in 2011 and 81st in 2012.
Lund won the KCAC meet last season, and was named KCAC runner of the week five times.
