By finishing in the top 40, Mecheso, Farrell, Kipchirchir and Manilfasha all earned All-American honors. This is the third time for both Mecheso and Farrell and the first time for Kipchirchir and Manilafasha to be named an All-American.

Shane Moskowitz (30:22.6), running in his first national championship race, Kirubel Erassa (30:44.8) and Fabian Clarkson (31:15.2) all added to the team score by finishing 53rd, 102nd and 164th places.

For the eighth-straight year, the Cowboys placed in the top-10 at the NCAA Championships.

“The guys really responded to the challenge of rebuilding the team,” said Smith. “We had some young guys that really came through and some guys with experience who ran the best races they've ever run. We had five guys run their best at nationals and that's hard to do. I'm just thrilled. They worked hard. They earned it.”
