RE: What's the lowest the top American at NCAA XC has ever finished?

So no one has been the first American and finished further back than the Penn State (Scharsu) and Colgate (Appenheimer) guys?

That's what it is looking like. But it's sometimes hard to tell.

Take Ben Hubers for example. A 13:40 guy who ran high school track in Georgia and recently competed at Indiana. He's Canadian and ran in the Olympic Trials for Canada, but has been in the United States for a long time. Certainly he has been here longer than the "American" Girma Mechesco. Without knowing everyone's individual story, it is really hard to tell if they identify as American or not.
