Trinity's Michael Bourstein, running on his home course, took home the individual title with a time of 16:21, barely edging out his teammate Hunter Norte at 16:22.
UMass-Lowell earned the team title with all five of their scoring runners finishing right behind one another in eighth to twelfth places.
Nick Campbell (Mansfield, Mass.) (24) and Jason Lynch (Lynbrook, N.Y.) (28) rounded out the Stonehill scoring with times of 17:11 and 17:16.
