The Viking men will bring home its highest finish in school history with a fourth-place performance in the mens 10,000-meter race.

Augustanas women netted 104 team points, just three points shy of national champion Grand Valley State (101), and five points ahead of third-place finisher Adams State (Colo.) (109).

Augustana had six runners earn All-America honors, including Runa Falch, Kristin Brondbo, Leah Black, Kyle Blakeslee, Travis Beniak and Adam Braun.

Augustana nearly placed three womens runners in the top 10 with Falch finishing eighth overall with a time of 20:39 in the womens 6,000-meter run. Brondbo was the 10th-place finisher at 20:53 just ahead of teammate Leah Black, who brings home an 11th-place performance finishing the course in 20:56.
