Terphed, eat your heart out. The first cross-country post of the season is mine. It’s mine!
The cross-country season, for both men and women, starts around Labor Day and runs through around Thanksgiving (the 2008 NCAA championships are Nov. 24 — and this year they’re in Terre Haute! Do I smell a road trip?). Last year, both Terps x-c teams finished ninth in the ACC. That isn’t very good.
But don’t go briskly jogging off any bridges just yet. Why, just this week, Alex Lundy was named ACC cross-country guy of the week for the second time. They’ve had two meets so far and finished third in both. I can’t tell if they keep cross-country “standings” or not, but so far, having not finished ninth yet, they seem like maybe they might possibly be getting somewhat better. So that’s exciting. Goterps.
