Head coach Carmin Mazzotta and assistant coach Kaileen McCulloch determined which team members will make the trip.

“We look at performance throughout the season, but especially at the bigger races we compete at in October,” Mazzotta said. “Attitude and commitment also play a role in our decision-making.

“Ultimately, as it is a self-selection process, we only bring athletes who are ready to compete at the highly competitive level one would expect from a national university championship.”
