In our weekly Q&A segment we asked Tommy Awad a few questions about life on and off the course. We caught up with him before he headed out to conferences. Let us know what we can expect during this weekend at the Conference meet. Hopefully a win individually and a team win. I think the Ivy League is really open this year and every team has a realistic shot at the title. I think you can expect a strong showing from Penn for sure. The hype for Saturday is real here in Philly, so I think that excitement will translate into a big race for us. Desc...

With the advantage of running on their home course, the Princeton Tigers will be tough to bea...

In 2010, Leah O’Connor, Sara Kroll, and Julia Otwell were freshman cross country runners at Michigan State University. The Spartans were 5th at the Big Ten Championships the previous year. They placed three runners in the top 24 and were 15 points behind Michigan (137-122), historically the better team of the two. Things were looking good for the green and white. When the #1 Spartans took the conference championship from #4 Michigan that fall, an interstate rival with the Wolverines was cemented.  Since 2010, MSU leads Michigan...
