College Highlights Fall/Winter 2017

Nothing makes us Utahns more proud than to see many of our Utah collegiate cross country programs competitive in the Mountain Region AND busting into the NCAA national rankings.  We’re excited to share some of the top individual and team results from the NCAA National XC Championships in this RUN UTAH article.

NCAA Cross Country Championships
Louisville, KY
November 18, 2017


On the Women’s side, out of the 31 teams that competed in the NCAA Championship, the BYU women’s team was the top Utah team to cover the 6K course.  They finished in 11th place with Utah State not far behind in 14th place.  Heading into the championship race the BYU women were ranked 14th and the Utah State women were ranked 19th.

From soccer player, to walk on runner, to all-american, Grayson Murphy’s running story is one of inspiration.  Burnt out with college soccer, Grayson switched schools and walked on Santa Clara’s track team.  Even with knowing very little about the sport, over time she developed a true talent for it.  All of her hard work, patience, and persistence paid off as she walked away from the NCAA meet 8th place overall, earning all-american honors, and representing the University of Utah team so honorably.  She covered the 6K course in 19:36, which is an average pace of 5:15 per mile.

Going into the NCAA Championships, the BYU men were ranked 2nd and the SUU team was ranked 19th.  Northern Arizona’s strong men’s team dominated the competition with a first place finish and a total team score of 74 points.  BYU got edged out for second place by Portland who finished with 127 points to BYU’s  165 team points.  SUU finished ahead of their season rankings with an 11th place finish and Utah State snagged a 27th place finish.


Dillon Maggard, a senior for Utah State, ran a phenomenal race to finish 6th place at the NCAA XC Championships.  He covered the 10K course in 29:16, which is an average pace of 4:42 per mile.
