As a team, Ole Miss finished 28th of 35 teams with 662 points, just 21 points behind Southeastern Conference rival Georgia.
"Barnabas ran a great race and ran well all the way," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker. "Last year he finished ninth in this race and wound up fourth in the NCAAs, so I think this is a good result for him. We ran pretty well as a team and took some positive steps.
Also on Saturday, Logan Waites won an individual title and led Ole Miss to a team title in the women's 5K race at the Choctaw Open in Clinton, Miss. Waites had a winning time of 17:41.47. Katie Breathitt finished second with a time of 18:08.64. Ole Miss won the event with 15 points, ahead of Southeastern Louisiana's 58 points.

"Our women had a phenomenal meet," Walker said. "Everybody ran personal bests and ran really well. They've been working hard, and we thought they had been improving. Today's results prove that. The B team also ran well. We wanted to see who could help us at the SEC Championships, so that was positive."
