A total of 37 runners from five schools competed in the men's 8k and the top Aggie finisher was Gideon Busienei with a time of 27:49, good enough for 17th place. Mark Tuwei posted a 28:18 time to earn 21st. Other men competing in the race included Eddie Fierro, Felipe Salinas, Clint Horton, and Tyler Stephens.

All of the Aggie women competing improved their times at the Las Vegas 5k compared with the Colorado College meet two weeks ago. Teenie Kent shaved more than 6 minutes off her time at the Colorado College meet two weeks ago, finishing with a time of 21:08 and earning 23rd place. Michelle Kent also took time off her score and completed the race in 21:34. Other runners included Brittany White, Korie Ham, and Megan Matejovsky.

Head coach Victor Esparza said, "The women improved their times on a tough course against a good team. We continue to develop every day , but we must improve some aspects to reach our goals."
