UW’s Bywater headed to NCAA cross country meet

SEATTLE — University of Washington senior Joey Bywater finished eighth Friday at the NCAA West Regional cross country meet, earning an individual bid to the Nov. 17 NCAA Championships in Louisville.

Bywater, a Lake Stevens High alum, will be making his second trip to the NCAA meet, and first since his redshirt freshman year in 2009. He charged ahead the final 2,000-meters to finish the 10,000-meter course in a time of 29-minutes, 53-seconds. His finish is the best by a Husky since Jeremy Mineau also placed eighth in 2008.
