After some key departures from last year's Canada West championship teams, both the men's and women's cross country squads have a lot to prove this season.

Three out of seven members from last year's Dinos women's CIS team have graduated, as have four from the men's.

  Cross Country: Solid goldPDF files may take a moment to load

It's been a luminescent season so far for Geoff Kerr. The Dinos cross country runner kept up his winning streak Sat., Nov. 11, by grabbing the individual gold at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport cross country championships. The gold is his fourth of the year, in only four events.

"Everything's sort of come together this season," said Kerr. "The races have all gone really well, thankfully. [The CIS championship] is definitely a fantastic experience. I've been pumped pretty much ever since."

  Midterm Review: Cross-CountryPDF files may take a moment to load


Shannon Popowich continued her domination of the Canada West conference this season, toppling competitors to take gold in many events. She even managed fourth at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Cross-Country Championship on the eastern coast of this vast country.

Lindsay Winter stayed just behind Popowich all year, with a few top 10s, including a second place finish in Spokane and a ninth place finish at nationals in the East. Renee Kaylor was also a regular in the top 10 at CW meets.

On the jolly eastern coast of Canada, the lads and lasses of the Dinos cross-country running squad vied for national pride at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Cross-Country Championship Sat., Nov. 12. Dalhousie University hosted the competition, which took place on a course in Halifax commencing so close to the Atlantic Ocean the fish could smell the athlete's sweat.

Can fish smell, you ask? Perhaps a more important question must first be explored: How did the Dinos do?

The Dinos cross-country squad tied up their sneakers for a race down in Mr. George W. Bush's promised land. Okay, it was Spokane, but the Dinos teams collected some hardware to sneak back through customs.

The women's team dominated the field, sealing the competition in a plastic bag and leaving them to suffocate. They placed six ladies in the top 10, and nine in the top 20. These astounding results kept competitors' scores well over double the Dinos' 22-point total.

With a talented field, you can't accuse the team of being talent-less. With names like Shannon Slater and Renee Kaylor on the women's side and Geoff Kerr and Andrew Carruthers on the men's side continually contributing huge success to the Dinos, the results speak for themselves.

  Cross country could go all the wayPDF files may take a moment to load

Hopes are high heading into this weekend's cross country nationals in London, Ontario.

"The men have a strong team and a good shot at a medal," said the co-coach of the University of Calgary's cross country team, Doug Lamont. "On any given day, they are probably a team that could win it."

Currently the men are ranked fourth behind the U of A, Windsor and Guelph. The women are in the eighth spot. Not spectacular, but not bad considering four of their seven team members are rookies.
