Considering all but two of the top seven are back, the pre-season coaches poll putting W&M at 28th is a little surprising. Nonetheless, I can't remember ever having W&M in the top 15 or higher for the first half season polls. The women are ranked 14th and the men 5th in the Southeast regional poll.

W&M XC Team Is "One to Watch This Fall"
Okay, so this Running Times article does not rank any team, but rather list three contenders and five others "to watch" on the men's side. Now departed Coach Gibby thought the team would easily return to the top ten this fall and that should not change with our new coach. The first coaches' association poll comes out on the 30th of August. The question for the women will be can they get back to the NCAA meet after not being there for a number of years. Walsh will be the first coach ever (at least in my memory) to coach both XC teams.
