NC State women’s cross country are national champions, again. The result was a tad narrower this time—one point, in fact—but the Wolfpack is collecting the big trophy for the third straight year.

It is wild to have an actual dynasty on campus like this, to the point where it would have been disappointing to see the team not win a national championship. But this is where we live now. It’s pretty nice. We should get some other sports to try this out.
Katelyn Tuohy didn’t repeat as individual NCAA champ, finishing fifth overall, but that was a crucial differentiator for the Pack against second-place finisher Northern Arizona, which had three top-20 runners but none in the top 10. State’s five scoring runners went 5th, 25th, 28th, 43rd, and 63rd. The final results are here.
Chancellor Woodson, you can light that tower red regardless of what happens in the football game, big dog.
