This coming Saturday, Sep 29th, George Mason will host the Mason Invitational Cross Country meet at Oatlands Plantation just south of Leesburg at 10 am. Both men's and women's teams will be running. It is a beautiful venue and a great place to watch and root for the Patriots!

LEESBURG, Va. – With the rainy weather finally yielding, the George Mason men's and women's cross country teams defended their home turf on a picturesque fall day.

The Patriots swept the team titles at the Mason Invitation on a warm Saturday morning at Oatlands Plantation. Competing for the first time in four weeks due to inclement weather postponing an invitational, the Mason men and women both finished first at their only home meet of the season. Sophomore transfer Siobhra O'Flaherty and graduate student Trent Lancaster both led the Patriots with second-place finishes on the men's and women's sides respectively.

George Mason Women's and Men's Cross Country teams will be traveling to Princeton this Friday for the Princeton Invitational (https://gomason.com/news/2018/10/11...aits-at-princeton-invitational-on-friday.aspx). For those who care, here is a link to the course map the teams will run at the invitational - https://goprincetontigers.com/sports/2015/9/2/210310843.aspx?id=15.

The Princeton women's team is currently ranked 29th in the country (http://www.ustfccca.org/2018/10/fea...ns-cross-country-national-coaches-poll-week-4), so it will be great to see our ladies go up against some ranked teams and see where they are.

On the men's side, the Princeton Tigers recently fell out of the top 30 and are now listed in the "others receiving votes" category (http://www.ustfccca.org/2018/10/fea...ns-cross-country-national-coaches-poll-week-4).

Go Mason!!!!

My niece has committed to run cross country at JMU. Traitor!
I'm sorry. Maybe she can transfer. She wouldn't be the first CC and Track athlete to transfer from JMU to GMU. A path is there ... There's still hope!

GMU's Cross Country teams finished the season in the Bronx on Saturday, 17 November, with a pair of 4th place finishes at the IC4A/ECAC Championships held at Van Cortlandt Park. Here is the GoMason.com story - https://gomason.com/news/2018/11/17...finish-fourth-at-ic4a-ecac-championships.aspx.

One thing to add to the article is both the women's and men's cross country teams greatly improved on their 2017 IC4A/ECAC performances. Both teams improved by 9 spots to finish in 4th place from last year's pair of 13th place finishes. Way to go Patriots!!!
