Wisconsin may have a lot of new faces on their men’s cross country team, but the Badgers continued their winning ways by capturing their 51st Big Ten Conference Championship in Shelbyville, Indiana on Saturday.
The Badgers came from behind over the last 1,000 meters to defeat Indiana by 11 points on the Blue River Cross Country Course.
Wisconsin won the team title with 40 points while Indiana finished second with 51 points. Purdue and Michigan State tied for third.
UW wins its third-straight Big Ten title and has now won more conference championships than all other schools combined. This was also the 10th Big Ten Championship for coach Mick Byrne in his 13 years at UW.
