HIGHLIGHTS

  • Men finished third in the American for their third Top 3 finish in the four years the conference has hosted an event (2nd in 2014 & 2015). Women finished sixth and marked their best finish since placing sixth in the 2004 Conference-USA Championships. It also marked the first single-digit finish as members of the AAC after placing 11th twice and 10th once.

  • Toby Loveridge placed seventh overall for the second year in a row to earn all-conference honors once again.

  • Dan Huben was 13th and earned his first all-conference accolade in cross country after earning the same distinction in the previous two outdoor track seasons in the 3,000m steeplechase (2nd in 205 and 3rd in 2016).

  • Juliana Madzia was 13th overall for the women to earn the program’s first all-conference honor as members of the AAC. Her finish also was the best for the program in the American, bettering a 27th-place showing of Ashley Earman in 2013.
