Quiet end to XC regular season

NCAA XC Regionals

As predicted, the final weekend of the regular cross country season was a quiet one. Collegiate athletes across the nation will have been making the most of not having to travel anywhere, and if their coach was in a good mood they may have even been able to enjoy the luxury of a lie in or two. With only a finite number of hard races in the tank each season, the weekend between hard races is the obvious time to take it easy both physically and mentally.

Of the seven British athletes who did compete at the weekend, only two of these were at D1 meets. Matt Clowes was in good form winning in Corvallis for his team Concordia. Ieuan Thomas won the battle of the Brits at the RMAC Conference meet in Colorado Springs, defeating Drew Graham (Adams State). However it was Adams who took the team title in what is one of the fiercest collegiate cross country rivalries.

A full preview of  Conference weekend will be on the site this Thursday.
