The Wyoming Cowboys cross-country team will run together at the NCAA National Championships for the first time since 1986.

Following a successful regular season, a fourth-place finish at the Mountain West Championships and a sixth-place finish at the Mountain Regional Championship, the Cowboys received an at-large bid for the national race, the NCAA announced on Saturday. That made Wyoming one of just 31 teams to qualify.

"This is a fantastic day for our cross-country program," Wyoming head coach Bryan Berryhill said in a release. "Words can't explain how proud i am of our student-athletes and the work they have put in to achieve this."

Wyoming currently stands at No. 18 in the national rankings.

The NCAA National Championships run on Nov. 17 in Madison, Wisconsin.
