Dallas ended the fall campaign strongly at the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Championship. The team notched 11th out of 22 teams. Anchored by Thomas Hogan's career fastest time for a new school record, the Crusaders boasted three additional personal records (PRs) that helped amass 334 points. Hogan (26:24), Andrew Maal (31:04) and John Patrick McHugh (33:35) all notched PRs.
The Crusaders hosted their annual University of Dallas Invitational for the 2nd straight year. Hogan highlighted the men's side with a 6th place finish of 16:39.3 minutes. John James broke into the top 10 with an 8th place finish of 17:03.5, as both UD's top runners enjoyed their first home meets of their careers. Dallas was 6th overall but the fastest Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) team (besting Austin College and Schreiner University).
Hogan and James made big impressions in the second competition of the year at the Texas Lutheran Bulldog Invitational. Hogan finished second place with a time of 16:33.99. However, he did score one point for the Crusaders since the fastest runner was with Incarnate Word and all its runners were unattached. James followed with two points and received 4th individually with a time of 16:48.31.
There was only one competition Hogan did not score the fastest time for UD, and that was the season opener at Bill Libby Invitational hosted by McMurry University. John James debuted in his first ever 5k and posted a 16:32 time for 14th in the standings. Hogan earned 17th and was 10 seconds behind the freshman. Peter deTar also started the year strong with a PR of 18:44. Dallas took 2nd place as a team with 44 points.
Dallas competed in four 8ks this season, with the first starting October off at the ETBU Invitational. Hogan and James again headlined the UD runners in the top five. Hogan earned 2nd place with a 27:18.01 result. James was 5th and clocked a time of 27:43.75. DeTar beat his PR by 51 seconds with a 30:44.54-clip. The team claimed 4th out of the DIII schools and five runners made debuts on a race this length.
