It’s the 50th Big Ten title in program history.
Hoare has now won six Big Ten titles. He captured the 8,000-meter race with a time of 23 minutes, 50.9 seconds, nearly seven seconds in front ahead of the second-place finisher, George Kusche of Nebraska.
On the women’s side, five-time All-American Alicia Monson (Amery, WI) won the women’s crown to lead the 7th-ranked Badgers to a second-place finish.
Ninth ranked Michigan State won the women’s team title, six team points better than the Badgers.
