McKenna is a two-time Western Athletic Conference individual champion,
winning the title in 2009 and 2011. He also earned first-team all-WAC

This was McKenna’s second time competing at nationals as he also
qualified in 2009, finishing 69th out of 250 runners. Additionally,
McKenna is only the fifth USU cross country runner to make it to the
championships since 2000, joining Trevor Ball (2005), Tiffany

is the first two-time selection during that span.
McKenna received an at-large invitation to compete in the
