Princeton junior Donn Cabral held off Indiana sophomore Andrew Beyer for the individual title at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational, which played host to an exclusive 21-team field in Madison, Wis., on Saturday. Cabral, who became an All-American in the steeplechase last spring, completed the run in 23:29, just steps ahead of Beyer, whose Hoosiers won the team title.

Host Wisoconsin was second followed by Princeton, which got an 11th-place finish from junior Brian Leung. The Tigers finished ahead of 14 BCS conference schools, including six from the Big 10 (Michigan State, Ohio State, Illinois, Purdue, Iowa and Michigan).

In the adidas women’s race, behind an impressive ninth-place effort from senior Claire Richardson, the Harvard Crimson took sixth overall, just six points behind Indiana in fifth place. Syracuse was the overall winner, followed by North Carolina, Michigan State and Michigan. Richardson finished the trek in 20:28, 22 seconds ahead of Harvard’s No. 2 runner junior Jeanne Mack. Among the teams that Harvard defeated were BCS conference powers Florida, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Kansas, Purdue, Illinois and host Wisconsin.
