TERRE HAUTE, IND. Kansas University senior Mark Menefee finished 111th out of 250 runners Monday in the NCAA cross country championships at Indiana State University.
The men's individual title was won by three-time Big 12 Champion Jorge Torres of the University of Colorado in 29:04.7. Stanford claimed the team title.
Brigham Young claimed the 2002 women's title. North Carolina's Shalane Flanagan won the women's title in 19:36.0.
Menefee placed in the top half of the finishers with a 10k time of 31:12.5 to complete his cross country career at KU.
"I'm really glad I made it (qualified for nationals)," Menefee said. "I'm not so pleased with how I finished, but I am proud of my effort. I ran as hard as a could. It's just been a long season and I felt really tired during the race. I'm looking forward to the track season."
Former Lawrence High runner Chris Williams of Duke placed 59th in 30:48.5.
Williams, a 2000 LHS graduate, placed sixth at last week's regionals, but was 33 seconds slower this week. The junior was hampered by a nagging hip injury.
