MINNEAPOLIS  – Senior captains Andrew Larsen and Derek Storkel have been honored by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as Division I All-Region honorees after the Minnesota men’s cross country team closed out its 2013 season with a tie for fifth at the NCAA Midwest Regional last Friday in Ames, Iowa.

A total of 450 Division I student-athletes earned All-Region distinctions by finishing among the top 25 individual finishers at one of the nine regional sites across the country last weekend.

Larsen and Storkel made the most of their final NCAA regional performances, setting personal records for the 10-kilometer meet in both finish and time.

Making his fourth appearance at the regional, Larsen finished 18th to pace the Gophers, crossing the finish line at 10:51.6 while Storkel finished 23rd at the ISU Cross Country Course in 31:02.7 in his third appearance at the meet.

Larsen and Storkel are the first Gophers to earn All-Regional honors since 2010 when Ben Blankenship, Mike Torchia and Pieter Gagnon earned distinction.
