Men’s Cross Country Pegged for Second-Place Finish

TOWSON, Md. – Susquehanna men’s cross country team has been picked to finish second in the Landmark Conference Preseason Poll, which was released on Wednesday afternoon.

The Crusaders picked up 50 points and one first-place vote while Moravian took first with 70 points and seven first-place votes.

Scranton was third (39), followed by Juniata (30), USMMA (25), Goucher (18), Catholic (16) and Drew (8).

SU lost two top-10 conference finishers from a year ago but solid upperclassmen combined with a large and talented incoming class gives Susquehanna a solid chance of finishing at the top of the conference.

The Crusaders open their season on Friday at the Bucknell Bison Open.
