FORT WORTH, Texas –
TCU junior Agnes Kemboi will represent the Horned Frogs at the 2011 NCAA Cross Country Championships Monday in Terre Haute, Ind.

The Eldoret, Kenya native finished sixth overall among individuals at the South Central Regional meet on Nov. 12 to earn all-region honors. Kemboi will compete at the NCAA Championships for the first time in her career, marking the seventh time in the last nine years that the Frogs have sent at least one individual to the national meet. She will be the first TCU female competitor at the NCAA Championships since Mary Kinyanjui and Calandra Stewart qualified in 2004.

The 2011 fall season has been a banner year for Kemboi after claiming All-Mountain West first-team honors following her third place performance at the conference championships. The junior was a three-time MW Athlete of the Week honoree this fall and enjoyed top-6 finishes in all of her races.

Indiana State will host the national meet at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course located at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center. The action will get underway at 11:08 a.m. with the running of the men’s 10,000-meter race. The women will follow at 11:58 a.m. with the 6,000-meter race. Coverage of the national meet will be free via a webcast on NCAA.com.
