Yesterday, NC State’s Women’s Cross-Country team finished 5th in the NCAA Championships, and the Men’s team finished 26th.
Last year, the Women’s team finished 13th, but the Top-5 isn’t abnormal for the Pack, finishing there 3 out of the last 5 years.
This was a step back for the Men’s team, finishing 11th in 2018.
Senior Elly Henes finished 10th in the nation, and earned All-American honors for the third time in her career, making her only 1 of 5 women in school history to do so. The last time a member of NC State’s Women’s team earned 3 consecutive All-American honors was in 1982-84 (Connie Jo Robinson).
