New Mexico placed four runners in the top 14 to secure the title with 90 total points – 15 better than second-place San Francisco, according to the official results posted by the NCAA. UNM’s Ednah Kurgat also won the individual title with a time of 19:19.50, capping an undefeated season.

The championship is only the third for New Mexico in the university’s 128-year history, following the women cross country program’s win in 2015 and the skiing team’s title in 2004.
