Follow our 2019 FloXC Countdown, where FloTrack ranks the top 25 cross country teams and individuals in the NCAA this season which will be LIVE on FloTrack. And, be sure to watch our LIVE FloXC Podium Reveal Show Monday, August 26th at 10 AM CT. The No. 14 men’s spot goes to Indiana and here's why:
Probable Top Five:
SR Kyle Mau (7:50 3K; 13:44 5K; 49th at ’18 NCAA XC)
JR Ben Veatch (13:40 5K; 28:57 10K)
SO Arjun Jha (13:56 5K; 133rd at ’18 NCAA XC)
SO Dustin Horter (8:14 3K; 14:33 5K; 129th at ’18 NCAA XC)
SR Bryce Millar (13:59 5K; 29:28 10K; 136th at ’18 NCAA XC)
The Indiana men return five from their top seven from last year’s 18th place finish. This year the Hoosiers will flirt with a top ten finish if they reach their full potential in 2019. The team will be led by Kyle Mau who was 49th last year and likely will be a top-20 finisher this season. Re-inserted into the line-up will be redshirt junior Ben Veatch who should be stride for stride with Mau up front giving the Hoosiers a formidable 1-2 punch.
Rounding out the roster will be three men who have shown ‘off the radar’ improvements this past spring. Arjun Jha ran a sub-14 5k unattached, Dustin Horter ran a 3:44 1500 unattached and senior Bryce Millar ran a strong pb in the 10k, 29:28.
