ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (UWECBlugolds.com) - For the third year in a row, the UW-Eau Claire women's cross country team won the NCAA Midwest Regional. Today's meet was hosted by Augustana College (Ill.) at Saukie Golf Course.

Washington University (Mo.) came in second with 93 points. The two teams automatically advance to the 32-team national championship, which will be contested in Waverly, Iowa next Saturday.
Margaret Ho (Sr.-Wisconsin Rapids, Wis./Lincoln) led the Blugolds with an eighth place finish as she came in with a time of 21:48.4 on the 6,000-meter course.
The top five Blugold finishers also earned All-Region honors as the top 35 runners make the All-Region team.
