Beloney Borange was 27th in 29:45.82 and Dennis Travis rounded out Delhi’s scorers, placing 34th in 29:55.49.
It marks the second straight year Delhi’s men have finished third at nationals and the second straight year the Broncos have done so without an All-American.
The Broncos had 117 points. Harper College won with 45, followed by Ocean County College with 84.
“Their great depth served them well this year,” Delhi coach Robb Munro wrote in an email to The Daily Star.
Delhi’s women had two All-Americans, including Kerry Connors, who earned the distinction for the second year in a row. Connors finished eighth, completing the 3.1-mile course in 21:12.43.
Woodlyn Dorismond also grabbed All-American honors by placing 15th. She crossed in 22:02.20.
The Broncos finished with 78 points in a meet won by Ocean College CC with 65 – 10 better than runner-up Gloucester. Mohawk Valley, which beat Delhi in the regional meet, finished fourth 94 points.
“One year after failing to field a complete team and with only one athlete returning, this was quite an accomplishment,” Munro wrote.

Walton graduate Jackie Yambor rounded out Delhi’s scorers. She finished 44th in 24:08.66.
