Parker Wolfe Wins First NCAA Title In Thrilling Finish Over Nico Young In Men's 5000m Final

North Carolina junior Parker Wolfe threw down a 54-second final lap and outpaced Northern Arizona's Nico Young and Stanford's Ky Robinson en route to his first NCAA title. 

Harvard junior Graham Blanks, the 2023 NCAA cross country champion who clawed back from injury this season, put the screws on the field with two laps to go as he was the first to begin pushing the pace, but ultimately faded to fifth. 

On his big move, Blanks later told the media, "Like a week or two ago, I was just kind of like, β€˜F*** that. If I’m going to lose this race, I’m gonna lose on my own terms.’”
