    B Macreery nailed it!

    The only Ivy Leaguers to finish in the top 25 three times at the NCAA Cross Country Championships are Bob Kempainen of Dartmouth (1985-87) and Cack Ferrell of Princeton (2003-05). Oddly, both hail from Minneapolis, where runners are tough. Don’t believe me? Check out these photos:
