Rmidi Kinini is going to nationals for Maryland - Eastern Shore

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland -- Khalil Rmidi Kinini is going to finish his collegiate career as the best cross country runner to ever compete for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

And that's not hyperbole. The native of Spain is a three-time Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion and the first runner in MEAC history to win three individual titles.

This past weekend, Rmidi Kinini cemented his legacy by becoming the first Hawk to qualify for NCAA national competition.

The senior finished fifth at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regionals at University Park, Pennsylvania on Saturday, Nov. 12. His time of 30:54 is the best ever 10k time for a Maryland Eastern Shore runner regardless of season.

Indiana State University will host the championships on Saturday, Nov.19, at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at Wabash Valley Family Sport Center located in Terre Haute, Indiana. The men's race will begin at noon.
