UVA hosting the Southeast Regional XC meet on Friday at Panorama Farms...


the 34th rated men's squad will have an uphill battle to qualify for the National meet with the #7 Furman, #9 VPI, #23 NCSU, #32 Campbell, and #32 Campbell squads in the 39 team field at this meet. Top two finishers at the meet qualify (18 automatic qualifiers and 13 at-large bids are available). Will be an uphill battle for UVA after their lackluster performances at the Nuttycomb and ACC championship meets. I'm holding onto hope that they have been pointing to this meet during the season because they otherwise do not have the showing to garner an at-large bid.

The unranked (and not receiving votes) women's squad will have an even steeper hill with #5 NCSU, #12 Furman, #23 E. Kentucky, #32 Louisville, and #36 VPI competing in the field of 41 teams. A truly herculean task for the women's team to qualify so I'm hopeful that they can make a good showing to get some much needed experience for this young team.

Wahoowa!
