Whiting Concludes Season at NCAA Championships
Shiloh Whiting        CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - Sophomore Shiloh Whiting completed the University of Arkansas Lady Razorback cross country season with a solid finish at the NCAA Championships in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Monday afternoon, finishing 163rd out of 252 competitors.
        "I think that Shiloh was very courageous today," Arkansas head women's cross country coach Lance Harter said. "To get up and fight for every place that you can is admirable. She told me after the race that after she got up from the pile she just couldn't get her legs going again."
        Arkansas' lone entrant at the championship, Whiting ran the 6,000-meter course in 21:40.6 for her overall placing, not bad considering that she was caught in a massive pileup of runners only 800 meters from the start of the competition. In the pileup, the runners made their way into a swale when a runner fell down causing many of the competitors behind her to tumble as well.
        The Cedar Falls-Waterloo, Iowa, area was hit by the same cold front that rolled into the Fayetteville area, dropping temperatures to a frigid wind chill of -3 degrees. A storm also went through the area on Sunday night leaving a dusting of snow over the course.
        "There was really no difference in temperature between today and Iowa State a few years ago," Harter said. "The only change was that it was cloudy and snowing in Ames and it was dry and sunny today."
        The conclusion of the NCAA Cross Country Championships ends Arkansas' season and the team is looking toward the indoor track campaign that begins in mid January with the Arkansas Quad.
