    BYU is back in Wisconsin this weekend competing in the men's and women's Cross championships.

    BYU will be chasing two time national champs, NAU, which took the Mountain regional this past Friday. The women are ranked ninth so they won't be chasing the title but looking for a top ten finish.

    Both teams did well at pre-nationals.

    Men finished second to NAU but only 23 points behind and return their top runner, Connor Mantz.

    Women moved up and finished 7th, with all top five returning.

    Regionals are in SLC this weekend. I don't know if BYU is confident enough to hold anyone out. BYU competes against NAU so in the men's group I imagine all are running. BYU's women are actually a sneaky chance of upending Arkansas as both Whitney and Erika are running very well.

    I can't predict anything as I haven't seen enough of Arkansas, but BYU could steal it on the women's side. BYU is in a rebuilding year on the men's side so they are likely to finish anywhere between 3 and 5th at nationals. Their fourth and fifth placed runners are dragging them down.

    Women get 2nd and Men are national champions!

    Holding off NAU and Colorado is amazing.

    The women were six points from stealing it, where their fourth runner dropped 14 places, thereby allowing Arkansas to sneak by.

    Eyestone said he had everyone run easy at Regionals, plus the muddy conditions favored BYU running up front, because making up ground under those conditions is very difficult. Even so, NAU's Michael Smith's down year was second, with a bunch of freshmen. BYU's win is fantastic but is considered an upset in the running world. Ed had said this is a rebuilding year earlier in the year.

    Kudos to Ed and Diljeet.

    Matt Owens is the hero here as he is a steeple chaser, and does not usually run X, but with Shumway not returning this season, Ed asked Matt to step in. His performance was the difference between first and third place.

    Absolutely. The guy had never run a 10k before and he comes out at Nationals and runs for 4th place on BYU's team, securing them the win.

    They lose two seniors from this team, but get back Mantz, Clingler, McKay Johns, Brandon Garnica, Shumway and Weaver, so the team will be competitive. Hopefully, Jacklin can continue to work on his fitness and form.

    Yeah. All my acronyms were confusing.

    The Head Coach supervises both the men and women’s programs?

    Yes, I was incorrect in my titles. Eyestone is the Director of Track and Field and men's xc coach. She is the Associate Director of Track and Field and women's xc coach. That was a promotion she got this fall, the associate director.

    She has resurrected the Women's program that had fallen from its previous lofty perch atop of the cross country world. I see great things ahead with her at the helm. Yes I hope we fend off other offers but if she turned down Stanford that's a great sign.

    Just came on here to post that. Great write up. I liked reading about how she encouraged the runner to reconcile with her mom (was that girl who publicly came out as bisexual?)

    Wow, that is cool. Didn't know the back story. Yes, BYU is lucky to have her.

    Man I hope BYU can keep her. I am stunned she didn't go to Stanford. I hope your daughter gets to run for her for her entire eligibility. Awesome!

    Very impressed by Diljeet. Anybody who can turn down the Stanford job is impressive.
