Close behind Teel were Aggies Christian Farris (20:31) and Colin Stoeber (20:40) coming in at third and fourth place. Their performances helped the Aggies claim the team title with 35 points and a 10-point win over on the host Huskies.

The Aggie women came up short of the victory with 38 points, claiming second place on the 5,000-meter course between Baylor and Houston Baptist. The women’s top runner was Haley Deakins in fifth place, posting a time of 20 minutes, 28 seconds. Tailing a second behind her was Katie Pia.
Earning places eight through 12 in the women’s race were runners Johanna Galloway, Melanie Enriquez, Laura Craig, Ashley Chamberlain and Rachel Williams, all finishing within 17 seconds of each other.
