Ferris runner competes at state finals

BIG RAPIDS — Ferris State University senior cross country runner Trevor Holowaty competed in the 2017 NCAA Division II Cross Country Championships on Saturday in Evansville, Ind.

Holowaty came in 127th overall in a time of 33:22.6 on the 10K course.

The Bulldog senior was among the national championship qualifiers for the event, which took place at Angel Mounds Course. The University of Southern Indiana and the Evansville Sports Corporation served as the co-hosts of the championships.

In order to be eligible to participate in the championships, teams and individuals had to qualify in their respective NCAA regional competitions that were held two weeks ago.

Along with earning All-Region accolades this year, Holowaty also was a first-team All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) selection after placing ninth overall in the 2017 GLIAC Championships on Oct. 21 in Marquette.
