Men Now Ranked 29th
For what little it is worth, since the men have yet to put their best kids on the line-up.  That will change, though, this coming weekend.

A Conversation With Coach Walsh
Click here to read a conversational interview with new men's and women's XC coach, Steve Walsh.

Gibby Recognized As 2010 Coach of the Year
Alex Gibby '97, now taking up a new challenge as track and field coach at the University of Michigan, led the Tribe to conference titles and the NCAA championships in cross country in each of his seven years with his alma mater. Last season, the cross country team was ranked in the national top 10 and finished fifth at the NCAAs. Three runners were named All-Americans as the team made their best showing since 1973.
“I really enjoyed the time I had at William and Mary,” says Gibby. “I feel really fortunate that I had the opportunity to coach and grow there. There’s a lineage of success that’s established and that’s what you look for in an epitaph: You took a good tradition and made it better.”
For his performance last year he was chosen as the W&M Coach of the Year.
