The LeTourneau University (NCAA Division III) men's cross country unit finished in second place at the American Southwest Conference Championships on Saturday at Sheldon Park in Abilene.
As a result of their stellar performance, the Yellowjackets have qualified for the NCAA Regional Meet, which is scheduled for Nov. 15 at Christopher Newport University in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Saturday's finish was the best in the history of men's cross country at the university that is located in Longview.
The only school that finished in front of LeTourneau was University of Texas-Tyler.
Included on the Yellowjacket team is Adrian Ornelas, a graduate of New Summerfield High School.
Ornelas, a freshman, ran in three meets for the Yellowjackets this fall.
