Morrissey crossed the line in 26:07.7, only 54 seconds behind tape-breaker Neal Holtschulte of Williams College, good for his first ever All-America outing. He was also named to the All-New England and all-conference teams this season and last, when he earned 2004 NESCAC Rookie of the Year plaudits.
On the women's side, Partee finished the 6k race in 23:00.3, 21 seconds ahead of junior Shauneen Garrahan (Fairfax Station, VA), who took 57th . Rookie Heather Wilson (Danvers, MA) and 2005 NESCAC Rookie of the Year Nicole Anderson (Kailua, HI) raced to 66th and 73rd places, respectively, completing the course only five seconds apart. First year Caitlin McDermott-Murphy (Newton, MA), sophomore Meg Ray (Menands, NY) and rookie Zandra Walton (Skaneateles, NY) rounded out the Jeffs' finishers at 86th, 144th, and 163rd.
Wisconsin-La Crosse claimed the men's team title while the SUNY Geneseo women edged perennial powerhouse Williams College to take home their school's first ever national team championship. Junior Hailey Harren of Gustavus Adolphus grabbed the women's individual crown in 21:51.9.
