The Chico State men's and women's cross-country programs competed in the NCAA Div-II National Championships Saturday from Evansville, Indiana.

It was an amazing day for the women as they finished in 4th place. Karlie Montana led the way coming in at 11th overall, the highest finish ever for a Lady Wildcat at Nationals.

West Valley High product Hannah Dorman took 16th place. Both Dorman and Montana earned All-American honors.

On the men's side, they earned a 9th-place team finish. Kyle Medina paced the 'Cats with a 4th place finish to become an All-American.

The performance capped off a great year for Chico State Head Coach Gary Towne and company. Both the men and women captured CCAA Conference titles and the men raced to a West Region title as well.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
