NAU Wins Big!

History was made in #LumberjackCountry in November when NAU Track & Field/XC won its THIRD STRAIGHT Men’s Cross Country NCAA Division I National Championship! A three-peat in NCAA Track and Field hasn’t been done since 2000 when Arkansas won back-to-back-to-back from 1998 to 2000. NAU also became the first non-power school since 1981 to win at least three straight national championships in Track and Field.

The championship game was hosted in freezing Madison, Wisconsin with 28-degree weather and a snow covered field. Good thing our Lumberjacks are used to that type of weather in Flagstaff!

Six of the seven runners were honored during the trophy presentation with three of them set to be present in this year’s NCAA championship competition.

The 2019 NCAA preliminary championships will be held in May in Sacramento with the final championships held in Austin, Texas in June.

Congratulations to the whole team and coaches! All of your hard work paid off. From The Elite Team, we wish you all a great 2019 season- don’t rest too much though, we want another ring in June!
