Rainy Run at Reif Meet
The University at Buffalo men’s and women’s cross country teams closed out the regular season in sloppy conditions on Friday afternoon at the Reif Memorial Run hosted by Cornell University. There was no team scoring as the Bulls rested many of their top runners in preparation for this weekend’s Mid-American Conference Championships. Temperatures in the low 40s with rain and windy conditions provided a soft footing on the Moakley Course of Cornell’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Course.

Head coach Vicki Mitchell commented following the Cornell meet, “This is a nice meet to give a lot of our “B” runners the chance to compete. A few of the runners that will compete at MAC’s used this as a tune-up. Competition was good from Cornell and Syracus, and the course is a tough and hilly course, made more technical by a steep and muddy hill into the gorge and back up.”
With the Bulls headed for this weekend’s MAC Championships, she commented, “The teams will go in with the expectation of performing their best as we will be competing against mostly regionally-ranked teams from the Great Lakes Region. The meet has always exceptionally high levels of competition and we’ll hope to capitalize on the opportunity.”
