Weaver Finishes in Top 25 at NCAA Championship Event Belmont women’s track and cross country runner Lauren Weaver, a Spring 2008 graduate, finished 25th in the preliminary race for the 5000 meter at the NCAA Championships. The Nashville native, who was the only runner representing a school in the state of Tennessee to compete in the event, finished with a time of 17:48.77. Weaver became only the third Belmont outdoor women’s track athlete in program history to participate in the NCAA Championship and was the first since 2004. She qualified for the NCAA Championship after finishing second in the event at the NCAA Mideast Regional, just two seconds behind eventual winner Angela Bizzarri of the University of Illinois.
