BYU cross-country: BYU secures first and fourth at the Pre-National Invitational
The Oregon Ducks are returning after finishing second to Washington at the Washington Invitational two weeks ago. Oregon was led by a runner-up performance from freshman Katie Rainsberger.

Portland is experiencing a rise after recording a team victory at the Roy Griak Invitational. The previously unranked Pilots beat runner-up No. The performance catapulted the Pilots to No.
It was the highest ranking the team has ever received. For a team that has never qualified to compete at the NCAA Cross Country Championships, the performance is unprecedented and presents a unique opportunity for the squad. With a runner-up finish at Roy Griak and an individual win at the Louisville Classic already under her belt, Finn will definitely be one to look out for. Colorado teammates Clark and Benner will be working together in the top pack after historic performances on their home course.
Her Pre-Nats race will be the first definitive test against tough competition this year. Fraser should be running close to Cranny on the course as the two teammates have been working together so far this season.

Many of the athletes competing on Saturday are already familiar with the course, as it was the site of the tri meet with Harvard and Princeton earlier this season. Led by sophomore Dana Klein, the Bulldogs placed fourth with points. Virginia won the meet with 30 points, followed by Mississippi State and Auburn.
The UVA meet is a new one for the Bulldogs. Virginia presents the greatest challenge, as the team is currently ranked No. In contrast to the course at Van Cortlandt Park, the 6k course at Panorama Farms is laid out on rolling grass fields.
