In cold and muddy conditions, Edward Cheserek, a freshman from Oregon, charged passed Kennedy Kithuka at 8,000 meters and never looked back, running alone for 2k, to take the win in 29:41.1. On the team side, Colorado took the win with 169 points, followed by Northern Arizona University in second, Oklahoma State in third, BYU in fourth and Oregon in fifth! 

Edward Cheserek won the FootLocker Cross Country champs last year, and now, has won the NCAA Cross Country title. That is the first time that was done since Bob Kennedy won the FootLocker and NCAA Cross in one year in 1987 and 1988, also as a frosh!

More details to come!
