The former Wolfpack All-America choice won his first-career international meet last weekend in Scotland.

Bobby Mack, former cross country All-American and current volunteer assistant for the NC State men's and women's track teams, won the USA national cross country championships national title in St. Louis.
Bobby Mack, a former All-American and all-conference runner at NC State joined the Wolfpack staff in 2009 as a graduate assistant. As a sophomore in 2004, Mack captured second place at the ACC Championships, then went on to earn All-America honors at the NCAA Championships later that year. Injuries sidelined him for all of the next three seasons, but he returned to action in 2008 thanks to an additional year of eligibility granted by the NCAA. He made the best of the opportunity and finished fourth in the ACC Championships and won All-NCAA Southeast Regional honors.
A native of Winston-Salem, N.C., Mack earned his degree in history education in 2008 and earned an NCAA postgraduate scholarship following the 2008 cross country season. He recently completed his master's degree in education.
