STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Stanford’s Charles Hicks became the NCAA Division I men’s cross country champion and North Carolina State’s Katelyn Tuohy won the women’s side on Saturday.

Hicks set a course record at the Oklahoma State Cross Country Course by crossing the finish line in 28:43.6, becoming the first Cardinal runner to win the individual title. Northern Arizona’s Nico Young was second at 28:44.5.

Tuohy crossed the finish line in 19:27.7, surpassing Florida’s Parker Valby over the final 1K. Valby finished at 19:30.9.

Northern Arizona claimed the men’s title for the third straight season — and sixth in seven years. The Lumberjacks won a tiebreaker over Oklahoma State, 3-2, marking the first time a tiebreaker determined the national champion in DI men’s history. The only other tie came in 1942, before a tiebreaker was established.

N.C. State won back-to-back team championships — the first to do so on the DI women’s side since 2009-10. N.C. State is the first program since Colorado in 2018 to win both the individual and team titles.
