Joffroi Holcombe’s, performance at the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Regional earned him all-region honors from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
Holcombe, a senior in computer engineering, finished in 13th place at the regional meet in early November. The top 15 finishers were named to the all-region squad. The senior from Alexandria, La., who was the Miners’ top runner throughout the 2007 campaign, covered the 10-kilometer course in a time of 32:12.
Earlier this season, Holcombe earned all-conference status from the Great Lakes Valley Conference when he placed 10th at the conference meet. He was also the winner of the Miner Invitational in September and was a two-time recipient of the GLVC’s “Runner of the Week” award.
