Men's Cross Country - 2014

Post by DoubleDipper on Fri Jun 13, 2014 10:37 am

After finishing a highly regarded 7th place in the 2013 NCAA X-C Championships, equaling a program all-time best, Coach Conner has added 13 more really skinny guys to this year's team:

That's a ton of guys. Time for a bigger locker room and bus (maybe a track?).
Too bad that Cheserek guy never chose UP. Dang.

Also, cool to see some national reach by getting guys from South Carolina and Florida. UP will always be a team of mostly PNW guys, which is cool, but it's nice to have the ability to recruit all over.

Not sure who did or did not run, but this doesn't sound good.

"The menís race featured five of the top-10 teams in the current national rankings, and nine top-30 teams overall. Last yearís NCAA runner-up, Northern Arizona, came through with the win on the menís side, scoring 62 points to finish just ahead of 21st-ranked UCLA which had 72. No. 6 Stanford was third with 92, No. 14 Virginia led early and finished fourth with 112, then No. 26 Oklahoma in fifth with 129 and the Huskies with 152. Washington was one point better than ninth-ranked Villanova, and also ahead of No. 7 Indiana and No. 5 Portland."

That field was essentially a who's who of the top 25.

Also, I can only imagine how crazy that finish was with so many people all finishing all together

Yea. Couple seconds could have switched the score up quite a bit. Not sure we would have enough to catch Wisconsin though. Luckily nationals is a 10k, I think our guys are only going to be better over the longer distance.

Via Twitter I'm seeing the men won the WCC title again, taking 1st, 2nd, and 4th in the race.

....and the women's team came in second to BYU, but UP senior Tansey Lystad set a personal record winning the women's race.


Looking at the results, the men's race must have been as about as exciting as a X-C race can be....12 of the first 14 runners were from UP or BYU.

Congratulations to Coaches Rob Connor and Ian Solof and all those skinny student-athletes. Goal Celebration!

Makes the math pretty easy. Hard to beat a 1,2,4 punch!

Pilots only 11 points (71 vs 60) behind 1st place UO, and 26 points (71 vs 97) ahead of 3rd place Stanford. Oregon's 5th man was 20th place, Pilots' 5th man was 34th.

And Portland has been running without Ryan Poland, our 3rd place finisher at Nationals last year.

Not sure if he will be fit enough to run next weekend, but if so... watch out! Portland could be in the mix for a podium spot.

Also, UP is hosting a watch party for NCAA nationals in the HOF Room next Saturday: Women's race at 9AM (UP's Tansey Listad qualified as an individual - an awesome accomplishment!) and the men's race at 10AM.

Still waiting for official results, but I believe UP finished well ahead of UO....and Stanford was 2nd behind Colorado.

I got a little excited as I was watching all the purple crossing the finish line, so I may have mis-spoke.† UO claimed the individual title (and their runners finished 1 & 2), but you are probably†be right.† CO and Stanford were 1 & 2 late in the race.
