    BOULDER — Entering the 2016 season, Colorado Head Cross Country Coach Mark Wetmore has a lot to be excited about.

    "The women finished second last year at the national championships, and we have a good group returning this year," Wetmore said. "Frankly I think it might be our best team ever, and so we expect to finish very high in the national championships. New Mexico won by a large margin last season, and they have a good team returning this season. Stanford, Oregon and Washington have good teams making up a loaded Pac-12 this season. Our women could be one of the three or four best teams in the country and still finish fourth in the conference."

    ...

    The men's team graduated some big talent in four All-Americans, so Wetmore knows they have some rebuilding to do. But the future looks bright with a large group of underclassmen.

    "The new people are hungry and are working hard," he said. "They've had a good summer and I think the men will out run their early season ranking."

    Looks like a nice rust-buster for the Buffs.

    Just looking near the top of the race results (from the tweet in the prior post), looks like the Buff women finished in the 2nd through 8th spots, with a couple others finishing in 12th and 13th. True frosh Buff Sage Hurta was the top CU finisher at 2nd overall.

    On the men's side, looks like they ended up occupying all top 11 places except for 2nd. Congrats to sophomore Ryan Forsyth for the individual win.

    Note- both the men and women probably treated this somewhat as a testing group run, as the top 7 Buff women finished within 2 seconds of each other, while the top 8 men finishers were within 3 seconds of each other.
