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.
