Junior cross-country runner Brian Dixon finished 143rd out of 245 runners in the 10K race this Saturday.

The race culminated a successful season for Dixon, who scored top-10 finishes in all of his conference races this year. He has received Midwest All-Region honors, All-MVC honors and MVC Scholar-Athlete.

Dixon is the first Saluki to qualify for the National Championships since Jeff Schirmer accomplished the feat in both 2008 and 2009.

Oklahoma State won the national title over second-place Wisconsin by 63 match points.
