Jennifer Mallen becomes CBU's first individual NCCAA Cross Country Champion. Mallen came in first place at nationals out of 204 runners. Her 5K time of 17:43.20 was enough to take down the field by three seconds.

Naomi Van Setten came in third for CBU and finished 18th overall in the field with a time of 18:58.12.
The Lancer women finished with 117 points and PacWest competitor, Azusa Pacific, won the national tournament with 80 points.
"The top three women ran very well today to cap off a great season for CBU", said Head Coach Ben Gall. "Jenny ran a very aggressive race to claim CBU's first ever cross country championship, I was very proud of her.
"Natalie Ball ran the race of her life to get under 19 minutes for the first time and claim All-American honors."
Talal Khan finished seventh overall out of 220 runners and placed first for the CBU men with an 8K time of 25:22.44.
Chris Cline placed second for the Lancers and finished 12th overall with a time of 26:01.94.

CBU finished with 84 points and Oklahoma Christian won the men's meet with 41 total points.
"Talal and Chris were All-Americans and I was extremely proud of them, but the big story of the day was Lucas Graham and Julian Hernandez, two freshman running their best college races yet", said Gall.
"I am very excited for the future of this program and this race showed why."
