Three members of the OLLU women's cross-country team participated in the 2012 NAIA Women's Cross-Country National Championship at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in November. OLLU junior Laura Echeverria clocked a 21:44, while freshmen Erica Ramos finished six seconds later at 21:50 and Marianna Hurtado ended at 22:13 among 309 runners in the 5K. All three members made their first trip to nationals.

David Duque participated in the 2012 NAIA Men's Cross-Country National Championships, also held at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. Duque, a sophomore from San Antonio Burbank, recorded the 8K in a time of 28:06 out of a slate of 309 runners. This was his second trip to nationals after finishing third in the Red River Athletic Conference Meet earlier in November.
