For the 2012 cross country season, Huber helped guide the UA women’s cross country team to a runner-up finish at the 2012 Pac-12 Championships with Elvin Kibet taking third place overall. The women’s squad then competed at the NCAA Championships and earned a sixth-place finish with Kibet and Jen Bergman earning NCAA All-America accolades. It was the team’s best finish since 2001 when they earned a fourth-place finish. On the men’s side, Lawi Lalang won his second-straight Pac-12 Championship while Stephen Sambu earned a runner-up finish.
