    BOULDER — If Saturday’s results are any indication on how the rest of the cross country season will go, it looks like it’s safe to say the University of Colorado will have another great one.

    The top-ranked men and second-rated women’s teams both won the Division I team titles at the 30th Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout. CU also claimed both individual crowns with senior Pierce Murphy and junior Erin Clark taking home top honors.

    Looked like a great job by the men and women. Congrats to all.

    Now onto Louisville (of the Kentucky variety) in a couple weeks to face other top competition at the Pre-National races.

    Just noticed there's also an article in cubuffs on senior leader Maddie Alm available- http://www.cubuffs.com//ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210390311

    BOULDER — Somewhere out there, Maddie Alm believes, is a high school cross country runner waiting to excel, waiting to run with the best. That girl is waiting for a chance to grow, to improve and to thrive in a program that will give her that opportunity.

    She might not be among the best today, but given the chance, she will someday prove she belongs. She’ll work hard, be patient and know that success doesn’t come overnight.
    ...
    In 2014, Alm finished seventh in the Pac-12 Championships, seventh in the NCAA Mountain Region Championships and 51st in the NCAA Championships, where the Buffs finished seventh in the team standings. This year, her goal is to move up in the individual standings and help the Buffs to a top-three finish.

    Not bad for a runner who never even qualified for the Colorado high school cross country state meet.
    ...
    And she credits the CU coaching staff and culture with helping her reach this point.

    “There’s this mentality on the team that you come here to become good and you know you’re going to have to work hard to get there,” Alm said. “No one is just handed anything. You have to work hard to earn your success and the coaches push you to do that. It makes for some really successful runners who had no spotlight on them before.”

    Alm and Clark earlier this week were selected as team co-captains for the Buffs, who were ranked No. 2 in the nation in the most recent coaches’ poll.

    CU’s next major meet will be the Oct. 17 Pre-Nationals meet in Louisville, Ky. After that, it’s the Oct. 30 Pac-12 Championships in Colfax, Wash.; the Nov. 13 NCAA Mountain Region meet in Albuquerque and the Nov. 21 NCAA Championships in Louisville.

    “We definitely have a chance to ‘podium,’” Alm said. “We have a talented team and we’re putting in a lot of work. If we keep doing what we’re doing and keep listening to our coaches, we have a chance to be there.”

    Both men's and women's squads recorded perfect team scores (15).

    Awesome.
