Ritzenhein's men's team finished sixth on the day, with Stanford claiming the all-around team title after controlling the day's events from the tournament outset. The Cardinal finished ahead of Wisconsin (174), Northern Arizona (189), Iona (207), Arkansas (213) and Colorado (259).
"This wasn't the race that I had wanted, and I wasn't feeling too good, but the outcome was good," said Ritzenhein. "This was a hard season and I won them all. It was hard to get back into racing after taking that much time off. Every race was hard, but this was the hardest with Ryan pushing me all of the way to the end."
The CU women's team tied their fifth place finish of a year ago behind Stanford (120), BYU (128), Providence (222) and Michigan (232). North Carolina's Shalane Flanigan claimed the all-around women's title for the second consecutive year in 19:30.
