CANADA WEST/CIS CROSS COUNTRY PREVIEW2013-11-07

2012 Canada West Placing: Women 3rd, Men 5th

2012 CIS Placing: Women 15th, Men 17th

Last CW Title: 1968 (men)

Last CIS Title: 1968 (men)

Both the University of Saskatchewan Huskie men’s and women’s cross country rosters will feature youth at the 2013 Canada West and CIS Championships.

Among the 10 athletes competing at the championship, just five have experience on the national stage and just two are in fourth and fifth-year eligibility. The women’s roster is full of entirely new athletes to the event.

As a team, the Huskies will strive for a Top 10 finish in the CIS men’s and women’s races. In 2012, the Huskie women’s team finished 15th, while the men finished 17th in the CIS Championship. The women were third in the Canada West and the men fifth one year ago.

Leading the women’s team will be second-year athletes Tye Buettner and Sonia Rees. Also competing for the women’s squad will be rookies Brandey Blahut, Anne Charles and Shannon Del Bigio. Buettner has had the top placing for the Huskies in all three prep races this season including fourth at the Stewart Cup.

On the men’s side, all five athletes have experience at the Canada West/CIS Championship including fifth-year Riley Magee and fourth-year Eric Mueller. Magee finished 35th in the conference and 123rd in the nation one year ago, while Mueller was 125th in the CIS and 37th in the conference. Magee has had the top placing for the Huskies in all three races this season.

Second-year athletes Robert Bigsby, Taryn Heidecker and Reid Balezantis all had successful races in their rookie campaigns in 2012. Bigsby had the best finish of the trio in 25th place (60th, CIS), while Heidecker was 33rd (119th, CIS) and Balezantis 41st (130th, CIS).

Western University hosts the competition for the second straight year at the Thames Valley Golf Course. A total of 141 athletes from 27 schools are set to compete at noon in the women’s six-kilometre race (increased by 1 km this season), while 131 runners from 23 institutions are scheduled to be at the starting line for the 10 km men’s event at 1 p.m.
