    "Jason Bunston handily beat them both at XC Nationals and was 2nd at NCAA cross-country. Not sure the year but here's a pic (Schiebler is beside Bunston): https://www.facebook.com/aitkinphotos/photos/a.344344329099280/856836277850080/?type=1&theater"


    Schiebler also ran 28:05 in 1995, before his 4th year of university and won several national cross titles.

    1996 World XC, Jeff was 117, Jason 132: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_IAAF_World_Cross_Country_Championships_%E2%80%93_Senior_men%27s_race#Teams

    In 1996 World XC was in S. Africa and some of the Canadian team members got sick from the water. Bunston was one of them. Kathy Butler ended up being very ill.

    Having a little context is important rather then just posting results.

    There are already Canadian universities competing in NCAA. They might go for it.

    "That statement just proved that you have absolutely no clue what you're talking about, and that you should probably stop posting. If we sent the top 7 women and men from USPORTS as a team this year, the women would, AT BEST, crack the top 15 and the men, the top 20."


    That's not accurate. Few D1 schools would have that much depth.

    Quoting: NC Blogger
    "2018 Paul Short Invite
    1 Yale 118 - did not qualify for NCAA
    2 Georgia 127 - did not qualify for NCAA
    3 Utah State 163 - did not qualify for NCAA
    4 Cornell 208 - did not qualify for NCAA
    5 Virginia Tech 256 - did not qualify for NCAA
    6 Connecticut 372 - did not qualify for NCAA
    7 Queen's University 373
    8 Guelph 383 41

    See a pattern? Granted Queen's was missing two of their top 5 from USport (and a good two at that), so let's drop their team score by 200 points. They are still not in the top three against teams that did not even get a sniff at the NC tournament.

    Guelph had their top 5 there....

    If you really wanted to entertain the idea of USport athletes running against the NCAA, your better bet would be to take the top 7 women from USport and the top 7 men from USport and run them as team Canada at the NCAA meet. Then we might be competitive.

    Just for kicks and giggles, let's say Brogan was the top Freshman at the NCAA Meet (who finished 29th). Heck let's put her top 20 (20:19). Based on the gap between her and the other top 5 at USport (x 3/4 as the distance was only 6k not 8k)
    1. Brogan 20:19.2 (20)
    2. Dube-Lavoie 20:29.7 (30)
    3. Beauchemain 20:31.9 (34)
    4. Jossinet 20:36.4 (41)
    5. Jones 20:49.3 (67)

    That would give our USport top 5 a team score of
    20+30+34+41+67 = 192

    A score of 192 would place our top five runners in the country 4th at the NCAA, and I think that is being generous.

    Based on the splits calculated above, our Champs, Laval would have placed:

    Dube-Lavoie 20:29.7 (30)
    Beauchemain 20:31.9 (34)
    Comeau 20:52.0 (70)
    Lacourse 20:53.3 (72)
    Berube 22:41.7 (241)

    For a score of 30+34+70+72+241 = 447, good for 16th place (not bad), but no where even close to the 65 and 103 point scores put up by Colorado and New Mexico.

    As a disclaimer, I did say I was being generous. Remember the Paul Short results above - Columbia and Dartmouth beat Yale, who won Paul Short handily, in the NorthEast Region and they finished 18th and 30th respectively at the NCAA Meet."





    A very interesting analysis. Well done.

    Simon Fraser's Men were 14th at NCAA Division 2 Champs
    Their women were 9th?

    How would our Top teams have compared?

    We can have a rough idea by looking at how UBC , UVIC and TWU did at Usports since SFU competed against them in a few meets.

    Very difficult to come up with an accurate prediction on how our Top 3 teams would do in NCAA D2 because courses are not the same length or degree of difficulty.
