1971 Steve Prefontaine, Oregon, 29:14, 6 miles
1973 Steve Prefontaine, Oregon, 28:14.8, 6 miles

Not Prefontaine; kinda of a trick question.

I was assuming you meant U of Oregon and were talking about NCAA Div I. Then it's Pre followed by Salazar.

Assuming NCAA Div I and:

- high school in Oregon then it's still Pre.
or
- any Oregon college, then it's Dale Story of Oregon St in 1961

If not, how about a hint?

No hint required; you got'em--Dale Story. Perhaps I should have said ". . . from Oregon." Interesting though, that the first Oregon champ was a Beaver, not a Duck.

Comment: Actually, Gary, you should have said "Which runner from an Oregon College or University was the first runner to win an NCAA X Country title" since although Dale Story ran for Oregon State University he was from Orange, CA, where he had won the California State H.S. Championship mile, in, I believe, his Senior Year.

Picky, picky, picky.
