Wilson toured the 3.1-mile course in 15 minutes, 39.10 seconds to win by a comfortable 25 seconds. His time is the third-fastest ever at Belmont Plateau, 20 seconds off the mark set in 2009 by Joe Rosa of West Windsor-Plainsboro North (N.J.).
Ranked No. 19 among all cross-country runners nationally and No. 2 in the Northeast by DyeStat XC, Wilson felt snubbed when his ranking dropped slightly the week after he shattered his home course record.
