Whiting Earns Berth at Nationals
Shiloh Whiting        FAYETTEVILLE - Sophomore Shiloh Whiting received bittersweet news from the NCAA Cross Country committee on Monday afternoon when she was told that she would be competing at the 2003 national championships, but only as an individual.
        Whiting was given a chance to compete thanks to her fifth-place finish at the NCAA South Central Regional on Saturday morning. Running a career best 21:08 for 6,000 meters, Whiting led the Lady Razorbacks to a third-place team finish at the regional meet, one spot out of automatic qualifying. Whiting's time was an astonishing 23 second improvement from her previous best which she set a year ago at the NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind.
        "I'm really proud of Shiloh," Arkansas head women's cross country coach Lance Harter said. "Shiloh ran perhaps the best race of her career at the regional and was really a bright spot for us. I'm very proud of her and know that she'll do well at the national championship."
        The invitation by the NCAA cross country committee to Whiting extends Arkansas' streak of consecutive meets attended to 26 dating all the way back to 1978 when former Lady'Back Jodi Rittenhouse made Arkansas' first-ever appearance at the AIAW championships.
        The NCAA Women's Cross Country Championship is scheduled for Monday, November 24, at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
