The top two teams in each race earned an automatic berth to the NCAA Cross Country Championships in Madison, Wisc. The women's team title was claimed by Oregon who finished with 44 points. Boise State took the second spot with a total of 49. Portland (77) and Washington (82) were the top two finishers in the men's race. The remaining teams will await their fate as the committee will accept 13 more at-large teams.

The senior ran 21:13.9 over the 6K course to finish 69th and left her 65 seconds behind Boise State's Allie Ostrander who was the individual winner.
