Hanover College runner Arig Tong wrapped up an impressive season with her second-straight trip to the NCAA Division III National Cross Country Championships in Louisville on Saturday.

Tong, a sophomore from Columbus, finished 124th in the 277-runner field, held at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park and hosted by Spalding University. She finished the race in a time of 23:01.6.

Tong is just the fourth female runner in school history to compete in the event. She earned All-Great Lakes Region honors with an 11th-place finish last week.

Parley Hannan of Ithaca claimed her second consecutive national title with a winning time of 20:53.8. John Hopkins claimed the team title with 125 points.

Tong will look to carry her early season success into the winter and spring as she competes as part of the Panther track and field team. The indoor season begins Jan. 17.
