NEW ORLEANS - The University of Tulsa men's track & field/cross country program finished 16th in the final John McDonnell Program of the Year standings, the USTFCCCA announced Tuesday.

The USTFCCCA Program of the Year award, now in its fourth year of existence, is given to an institution that had the best combined team finishes in each of the NCAA's cross country/track & field sports in a given academic year.

"This is a great compliment for Tulsa to be named one of the 20 best programs in the nation," head coach Steve Gulley said. "We're very fortunate to have been able to put together three good national meets in the same year.

"I also see this honor as a compliment to the commitment we made at the beginning of the year to have Tulsa taken more seriously at the national level."

Tulsa was the only Conference USA program to land in the top 20, and the team recorded a school-record 16th-place finish with 114 points.

The Golden Hurricane placed 25th at the cross country championships (25 points), tied for 18th at the indoor championships (19.5 points) and tied for 66th at the outdoor championships (69.5 points).

Tulsa won Conference USA Championships in both cross country and indoor track & field this season, while the men also finished third during the outdoor league meet.

Florida State was named the John McDonnell Men's Program of the Year after finishing first with 25 total points.

Tulsa was one spot behind Oklahoma, who finished 15th with 100 points. Oklahoma State checked in at No. 20 with 134 points.
