Since nobody except Jonathan Green and Martha MacDonald will be going to Louisville for the NCAA cross country championships, I think most of the team will be going to NY for the IC4A XC championships. When I was at Georgetown, this meet was almost more important than the NCAA. The Hoyas won this meet both my junior and senior years also with the number one finisher for both years in Joe Lynch and Eamon O'Reilly. It will be interesting to see how both the men and women do. The women run in the ECAC meet (the female version of the IC4A).

Meanwhile at the NCAA in Louisville, the weather has made a shift in starting times. They are expecting strong winds and rain. Jonathan and Martha are there to compete as individuals. Jonanthan placed 5th in 2015 on the same course. Jonathan has also received the Regional athlete of the year. Congratulations Jon.
