In a race that came down to the final strides, the 2017 NCAA outdoor 5,000-meter champion Grant Fisher won the Pre-National Invitational at the Thomas Zimmer Championship Course in Wisconsin leading the No. 5 Cardinal men (82) to a second place finish behind No. 1 Northern Arizona (41). The women, led by fifth-year Elise Cranny and junior Fiona O’Keefe, placed fourth and fifth, respectively, enroute to a third place finish for the No. 5 Cardinal women (129) behind No. 3 New Mexico (67) and No. 10 Michigan (120).
Despite sitting part of their strongest runners, Stanford men’s and women’s cross country equally succeeded in Oregon this Friday, both claiming second place of the Bill Dellinger invitational.
