CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior Maksim Korolev and junior Viviana Hanley were recognized by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) as all-region honorees, the organization announced.

The top 25 individual finishers at regionals earn the all-region distinction. Korolev, who has paced the Crimson late in the season, won the NCAA Northeast Regionals with a time of 30:11.6 to beat out Iona's Matt Gillespie by over seven seconds. The harrier will be considered as one of the favorites at the NCAA Championships, leading the Crimson there for the first time since 1979.

Earlier this season, Korolev took home All-Ivy first team honors after setting a conference record in the 8K at the Heptagonals. Sophomore Tom Purnell was named to the Ancient Eight second team after ranking 11th overall at the Ivy Championships.  

Hanley paced the Crimson women with a time of 20:46.1 in the 6K. The Attleboro, Mass., native ranked 18th overall in the field.

Hanley and senior Morgan Kelly were also named to the All-Ivy second team after finishing eighth and ninth, respectively.
