Flanagan, who finished ninth at the USA Junior Cross Country Championships in Spokane three weeks earlier, clocked 14:08 over the four-kilometer course.

Canada's Genevieve Lalonde won the NACAC title with a time of 13:50, with Team USA's Madeline Morgan second at 13:53.

Canada's Caroline Pfister (13:56) and Chelsea Graham (14:00) finished third and fourth, and combined with teammate Ciara Kary's eighth place finish (14:30), led the Canadians to repeat as NACAC team champions with a low score of 16 points, as opposed to the Americans' 24 points.

Jamaica finished third in the NACAC team race with a score of 56 points.

Afterwards, Flanagan said, "It was a pretty tough course, with lots of rocks and lots of hills. The weather was tough to overcome, as it was 95 degrees but felt like 100. It was a really great experience though and am so happy to have made the trip"
