Northern Arizona's Matt Baxter runs to the finish line in the George Kyte Classic at Buffalo Park earlier this season.

Beating out Portland and BYU Saturday morning in Louisville, the Northern Arizona men's cross country team repeated as NCAA Division I National Champions.

With Tyler Day and Matt Baxter out in front of the pack throughout the 10K, Northern Arizona finished with a score well ahead of any other school. Baxter took second overall, missing an individual title by less than a second with Day following in third.

Peter Lomong came through with an eighth-place finish as Northern Arizona was the only school with three runners in the top 8. Andy Trouard finished 35th and Geordie Beamish rounded out the scorers in 40th.
