GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – For many senior runners like Jed Christiansen, Saturday’s Knight Invitational marked their final collegiate race at Gainey Sports Complex – home to Calvin’s men’s and women’s cross country squads.
But it also marked the beginning to a promising 2008 season, as Christiansen (Greenville, Penn.) helped to bolster a first-place finish for the men’s team while sophomore Jessica Koster (Grand Rapids, Mich.) and senior Lauren Bergstrom (Rochester, Minn.) paced the women to a similar outcome.

The Calvin men’s cross country team will seek to keep a pair of notable streaks alive. Heading into the 2008 campaign, the Knights have captured 21 consecutive MIAA titles. The streak is the second longest active championship streak in MIAA history. The Knights have also garnered 10 consecutive top four national finishes beginning with a national runner-up berth in 1998 and later including national titles in 2000, 2003, 2004 & 2006. Last year, Calvin entered the NCAA III Cross Country Championships ranked number-one but finished fourth at the national meet.
