On the day 50 years ago, Glenn Ogden ’65 finished 15th in a field of 112 at the NCAA Cross County National Championships.

It was a frigid 25-degree day 7,200 feet above sea level in Laramie, Wyoming, but the former Brooker ran to a time of 32:20 to help the University of Missouri finish 6th overall. His performance earned him a place on the All-America team.
