For the third year in a row, Brevard College is the Division II Cyclocross national champion.

The team turned in a customary dominant performance in Austin, Texas, at the event sponsored by USA Cycling this weekend, bringing home its second national title of the academic year and sixth overall cycling title in the past three seasons.

The Brevard women were particularly impressive, with Allison Arensman and Sarah Hill providing a 1-2 punch at the top of the standings.

Arensman can add Saturday's win to her pair of individual national titles at Beech Mountain, the site of Brevard's third straight team mountain bike national title in October.

Janelle Cole, a mid-fall semester signee and the team's newest member, gave Brevard three of the top seven finishers, while Samantha Miranda and Sarah Fonger also had top 30 finishes.

On the men's side, the Tornados placed two riders in the top ten and another three just outside as Cypress Gorry and Zach Valdez led the way with a sixth and 10th-place finish. Walker Shaw, Trevor Kingsbury and Spencer Lowden were among the next five riders to cross the line, while three additional Tornados finished in the top 42.

The team earned maximum points in every race to take the overall omnium title and earning a relay national title with a team consisting of Shaw, Hill, Valdez and Arensman.
