    Congrats Buffs men's team. This was nice news to read after driving back from the state xc meet in the springs and listening to Oregon dominate the first half.

    CU men dominated by so much that 21st place in the meet was Buff Connor Winter, but he was displaced from the scoring because he was 8th on the team.

    Truly an amazing performance by our Buffs!

    Looks to me like Wetmore has them peaking just right. In XC, the leadup races to the championship are virtually training runs. They will be backing off the distance stuff and focusing on speed work. The NCAA will come down the the 4 and 5 guys.

    Congratulations to the M-XC team on winning the first 2 conference titles since we joined!

    :woot:

    Had to beat #3 Stanford to get this win and we took them by an impressive 33 points. CU has a legit shot at a national title this year.

    Also, the women finished 5th in defense of their title. Not as disappointing as it sounds. We were rebuilding this year and had No. 3 Oregon, No. 4 Stanford, No. 5 Arizona and No. 6 Washington all in the field. We finished much closer to 4th than 6th.

    Love to see that these two teams are doing so well. Congrats to the champion men and a great showing by the women. Two teams that know what it means to compete and coaches that get the best out of their teams.

    Next up....

    Friday Nov 9
    Cross Country NCAA Mountain Region Championships
    Fort Collins, Colo.

    Too bad its a weekday. It would be great for anyone in the area to come our and support the #2 in the nation Men's team on Colorado soil. This is the last outing prior to nationals.

    A buck forty soaking wet. Basically a set of lungs on a pair of sinewy legs driven by a serious endorphine addiction.

    Plus Shalaya Kipp clearly is running on dead legs after the Olympics - she is far off her best performances this fall. Congrats to the men's team - they are as deep as I have ever seen them. I would not bet against them in the National Championships.
