SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named BYU freshman Dallin Farnsworth its men’s cross country runner of the month for November 2015. It is the second straight month a BYU runner took home WCC Runner of the Month honors.
Farnsworth had quite the inaugural season with the Cougars. Throughout the 2015 season, Farnsworth paced BYU in most of their races, finishing first for the men in five of their seven meets. In October, Farnsworth earned himself the honor of WCC Freshman of the Year after finishing third at the WCC Championships. In November, he led the Cougars at the NCAA Mountain Regionals where he finished ninth. A week later at NCAA Nationals he again paced the Cougars placing 74th. His competitive finish at nationals helped the Cougars place No. 12 as a team. Farnsworth was the top WCC runner at both the NCAA Mountain Regionals and Nationals.
