2009 Calvin Men's Cross Country Schedule

Will the 2009 Calvin men’s cross country season be one of reloading or rebuilding? The answer may lie somewhere in between.

Calvin’s run of 10 consecutive top-four national finishes came to end in 2008 as the Knights slipped to fifth place at the NCAA III Cross Country Championships. Eligibility for two All-Americans from last year’s squad has also been exhausted leaving plenty of question marks surrounding a 2009 Calvin men’s cross country team that features only four seniors and just three individuals that were members of its team that competed at the 2008 national meet.
