Anyone feel like this was the most “meh” national meet in a while? I mean it was fine and I always love a good XC race, but I turned off the broadcast thinking, “well I’m gonna forget about that race is 48 hours”.
Girls race was an absolute snooze fest. It’s been 3 hours and I can’t remember a thing about the race besides NC State winning.
Boys race was fine. More of the same though. No one ever had a chance against NAU or Mantz. I guess ND was maybe the biggest surprise of the day…but it’s never fun watching a team implode. Boring course, boring races, hoping some new individuals and teams step up soon as Mantz still has another year left and it seems like NAU is stacked for the next decade.
Also, when will we agree that BYU just isn’t that good? Connor and Casey are studs, but my goodness their 3-5 is always a letdown.
DII was way more interesting on the mens side.
