Cross Country 2016-17

Gordon Mack of Flotrack took a look at BYU's success early in the cross-country season and explains why its the No. 1 team right now.

He writes, "What we thought was going to be an epic battle between preseason No. 1 Stanford and No. 2 Syracuse was not the case. Instead, Stanford decided to rest three of its top seven (Sean McGorty, Grant Fisher, and Alex Ostberg), and out of nowhere No. 14 BYU stole the show, upsetting a full-strength Syracuse team."

After talking about what the standings may have looked like had all the best runners competed, Mack continued, "none of those teams have accomplished as much as BYU has this season. BYU beat the preseason top two teams and likely would have beaten them even if they ran full-strength squads. That's more than any other team in the nation has done so far to earn the No. 1 ranking."

Today was the WCC championship. Women took 2nd by 2 points. Two girls came behind a PU runner by half a second. It was that close. The men won easily and got close to a perfect score. Our best runner came in 2nd place. Regionals in 2 weeks. I assume both will be in Logan.
