Men’s Cross Country News

The McMaster Marauders are the new team to beat in men’s cross country.

The Marauders jumped into top spot after capturing team gold at the Bill Salter Western Invitational on Saturday – the OUA’s season-opening race. McMaster moved to No.1 for the first time since the final rankings of the 2018 campaign (Oct. 30, 2018), following their first conference title since 1964. The Marauders will next face OUA competition when they host the Bayfront Open on Hamilton on Oct. 11.

 

In other U SPORTS rankings, Queen’s (women’s cross country), Montreal (men’s soccer), Ottawa (women’s soccer) and Western (football) remain at No.1 for another week.
