Powder Springs, Ga. (April 26, 2015) –Marian University claimed the division I team omnium for the third year in a row at the 2015 USA Cycling Collegiate BMX National Championships on Sunday after its riders Justin Posey and Felicia Stancil repeated their wins from a year ago for this year’s men’s and women’s individual titles.
Mars Hill University was the team omnium champion in division II thanks to strong efforts from Alan Hudson who was sixth in the men’s competition, and Josie Ritchey who was ninth in the women’s contest.
Held in conjunction with the Dixieland Nationals at the Cobb County BMX track in Powder Springs, Ga., the collegiate event debuted its new two-day format this year. Coeds raced on both Saturday and Sunday with the national champions determined from the combined scores of both days.

Marian’s Luke Roarty was fourth on Saturday but then grabbed third on Sunday to take his place on the podium’s third step. Fourth place went to Jacob Sherbno of Lindenwood University thanks to his fifth-place finish on Saturday and his fourth-place effort on Sunday.
