Edison’s Sarah Foster, a junior, has helped lead Ohio State women’s cross country to a remarkable turnaround this season.

For the first time in its 28-year history, the OSU women’s cross country team will compete for a national title on Monday, Nov. 23 at the NCAA Division I Championships in Terre Haute, Ind.

Foster was one of three OSU runners to make the 2009 Great Lakes All-Regional team by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The three student-athletes are the first members of a Buckeye squad to be named to the All-Regional team in school history.

Her sophomore season in outdoors, Foster set the second and third-best 10000m times in school history. She also finished fifth in the 10000m at the Big Ten Championships and 11th in the 5000m.

In indoor season this year, she owned the top team time in the 5000m, a 14th-place run of 17:01.06 at the Big Ten Championships.

At Edison, Foster was a Division II state champion in the 3200m in 2005, while also earning All-Ohio honors.

Stay tuned for a feature story by Zach Dzurick on Foster and how OSU does in the NCAA Championships.
