Field Soosloff made history for the Montana State University-Northern men's cross country team this past Friday as he was the first male runner to qualify for the NAIA national meet, which was held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Out of the 317 individual male runners who participated in the meet, Soosloff finished 229th with a time of 27:45.64.
