NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Susquehanna men’s cross
country team has received a top-10 ranking in the United States
Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA)
preseason regional rankings. The Crusaders are 10th in
the Mideast Region, the only men’s squad from the Landmark
Conference to earn a top-10 regional ranking.
SU returns nine of its top 10 runners from last year’s Landmark Conference championship meet. All nine of those runners placed in the top 26 at that meet, including four All-Conference runners. Eleventh-year head coach Marty Owens has also added a recruiting class of seven newcomers, adding depth to an already veteran-laden team.
Susquehanna opens its season on Saturday, August 31 at Bucknell.
