Pancake set a career best, winning the event with a time of 8:09:40. The time puts Pancake fifth in USU program history and was the third fastest time of all MW runners this season.

As a team, Utah State finished with four individual titles and 24 top-five finishes in the meet.

Joining Pancake with individual titles were junior Mattie Geddes, who finished first in the women’s mile. Her time of 4:54:93 was good enough for eighth place in Aggie history.
