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.
