Goose crossed the line in the 8k race in 23:42.44. He was followed closely behind Bayley (23:44.73) just over two seconds later. Gillespie was 10 seconds behind Bayley (23:54.67).

Arizona's Lawi Lalang and Stephen Sambu were the top two finishers individually. UNC-Greensboro's Paul Chelimo also came in ahead of the Iona trio.

Junior Daniel Clorley was Iona's fourth finisher in 13th place (24:07.12). Sophomore Jake Byrne rounded out Iona's scorers in 19th place (24:11.05).
