Men’s XC Are The Ivy League Champs

Didn’t we say we had a fucking amazing cross country team? Yesterday at the Ivy League Cross Country Heptagonal Championships, the Columbia men’s team achieved 48 points (remember: lower points is better) for the win–beating out defending champ Princeton and tying Columbia’s historical best from 1979 at the Heps.

Nicolas Composto, CC’14, took second place in the 8k, running faster than anyone else in Columbia 8k history and earning first-team All-Ivy. Behind Composto in fourth and fifth, respectively, were John Gregorek, CC’14, and Daniel Everett, CC’15, also earning first-team All-Ivies.

On the women’s side, the team came in 5th overall with Waverly Neer, CC’15, finishing second in the race.

Here’s an adorable video of the win.  Congratulations!
