    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Southern Illinois cross country student-athlete Brian Dixon participated in the NCAA Nationals today, finishing 143rd out of 245 runners in the 10K race.

    This race capped off a superb season for Dixon, whose only finishes outside the top-ten have come in the NCAA regional and national meets. Dixon has been named USTFCCCA Midwest All-Region, All-MVC, and an MVC Scholar-Athlete, in addition to qualifying for nationals, in his stellar 2012 season.

    Dixon was the first Saluki runner at the national meet since 2009 when Jeff Schirmer earned a second-straight All-American honor for his 19th-place finish.

    Fellow Midwest region squad Oklahoma State ran away with the national title by distancing themselves from second-place Wisconsin by 63 match points.
