Wow! Terrific leap forward for the program and for Rob.
Great performance by all the runners.

Congrats to Tansey, Scott, and Reid on earning the All America slots also.

From UP Athletics:
The Pilots are one of only four teams in the country to finish in the top 14 at the NCAA's for eight consecutive years, joining Northern Arizona, Wisconsin and Oklahoma State. Portland's previous best finish was seventh, which happened in 2001, 2008 and 2013.

Oregon was well back of the Pilots in sixth place.
cheers

And what happened to BYU?
Their top finisher was 67, behind four UP runners.

With 5 runners in the top 70, it was Woody Kincaid who moved up 31 spots to #70 in the last 1K that sealed the deal for UP's 3rd place finish. #TEAM

That is HUGE. Passing that many guys with only 1k to go is impressive.
Great performance for the program. I was hoping for top 5, this is much better!

Great coverage by the O on the Cross country championships.



So.. By that article Oregon Universities got a clean sweep at Nationals.

No mention that UP's third place finish put them on the podium while the Ducks team placed sixth and watched the medals ceremony from the stands.

Wow. That caption is pretty bad. It easily confuses the individual places with team results.

There will be a celebration for the XC teams tomorrow (Tuesday) at 3:30 in the Chiles Plaza, if anyone happens to be around.

The team will also be recognized at the Oregon State basketball game... something tells me if the announcer mentions that we beat the Ducks, EVERYONE in the crowd will be thrilled. Smile

During the Ducks' football game against Colorado last weekend I heard the PA announcer in background talking about the XC results. I wonder if he mentioned Colorado won the team title and the Pilots were the best team from Oregon.  Razz
