Jesse WilliamsonMy RIT Tigers made the front page at the NCAA website this week with their performance last weekend at the Geneseo Invitational.

The RIT men’s cross country squad, ranked 23th in the latest NCAA Division III poll, finished second out of 18 teams at the Geneseo Invitational cross country meet hosted by SUNY Geneseo at Letchworth State Park on Saturday, Sep. 30. SUNY-Genseo, ranked fourth in the nation and the hosts of the event, barely nipped the Tigers, finishing with 34 team points to RIT’s 36. SUNY Brockport was a distant third with 108 points.

RIT is doing really well this year, and has been moving up the polls. I have raced in the Geneseo invitational a few times while I was in school, and it is a flat and pretty fast course. It is in a beautiful national park, and really condenses the race down to the flattest and least intriguing course that they possibly could.
