    OTOH qualifying makes it a great season...
    They lost their number 1 runner, someone ranked about 10th or so nationally. That puts a weak 6th man in to a very weak 5th man slot, and in a region with a lot of good teams that hurts a lot. It has relatively little to do with under-performing after a good conference race.

    As for the weather, a half inch of rain might matter here more than most places. If it rained in the same timing at the Wisconsin Zimmer course it would not matter at all. However, I think that Terre Haute/LaVern-Gibson is on top of an old landfill that has a clay in the top and it does not absorb water well and the wet clay surface can be slippery. It is the achilles heal of an otherwise great course (and with a team that runs the race that is really polished, possibly (probably) the best group in the country).

    Monson ran a good but not good enough race on the men's side, losing to the slight favorite Kelati. Who would have thought that of the four favorites (individual/team, men/women) the one that did not match the predictions was NAU, and they were a fraction of a second out of third.

    And Seig Lindstrom is dancing tonight; his Pomona-Pitzer team won their first National Championship in the DIII Men's race.

    I think NAU ran too hard at the regional and left it there.
