LAST YEAR AT WISCO: Allie Ostrander won the 2015 Wisconsin Invitational after crossing the line in a 6K course-record time of 19:19.5, breaking the previous record by 12 seconds which was held by seven-time NCAA Champion Abbey D’Agostino.

Michael Vennard led the charge with a 17th-place finish, clocking a 23:51.8 on the 8K course.
