Ottman finished fourth at the 2019 NAC Championship, running a time of 30:03.7. Hooper followed in 12th place, running at a 31:34.3 place. Those two top finishes helped propel the Terriers to their best finish in program history, coming in third.

The honorees positively affect the cross country culture and race environment by clearly demonstrating sportsmanship and integrity beyond the sport playing rules and etiquette.
