Carl Sandburg College women’s cross country freshman Ashlynn Boyer (Lincoln, Ill./Lincoln) just missed earning all-region honors but will still head to the NJCAA Division I national championship after finishing 16th in the Region IV meet Saturday at Sauk Valley Community College.

Boyer placed 16th, missing the All-Region IV team by one spot, but her time of 22 minutes, 54 seconds on the 5-kilometer course was good enough to move on to nationals. She’ll race Nov. 11 at Lakeside Golf Course in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Fellow Chargers freshman Samantha Davidson placed 26th, in 25:15. DuPage’s Amanda Jones won the women’s race with a time of 19:30.

Freshman Cameron Woodbury (Cambridge, Ill./Cambridge) paced the Sandburg men’s team with a 34th-place finish in 31:03 on the 8K course. Sophomore Brennan Foley (Galva, Ill./Galva) was 36th in time of 32:17 and sophomore Sebastian Arteaga (Galesburg, Ill./Galesburg) crossed the line in 39th at 34:14. Waubonsee’s Dylan Zangri was the men’s winner with a time of 25:27.
