“We were ranked 13th going in, but we knew we were better than that,” Head Coach Jeff Langdon said. “Our goal was top eight and we got eighth! We only had five guys running today, so we had no room for error, but every one of our guys ran a smart, tough race. We’re extremely proud of their performances today.”

Alabama won the meet with 30 total points after placing five runners in the top 12 overall. Florida State was the runner-up with 55 points, while Florida took third with a score of 76. Belmont and Kennesaw State were at eighth and ninth place respectively.
