Expectations for the men and women who run cross country for BYU are once again high this season. The Cougar men were favored to win the West Coast Conference championshhip, while the women were picked to place second.
"We are grateful for the respect and we look forward to a great year," BYU women's coach Patrick Shane said. "There are several other good programs in the conference that are on the move. We will get a better idea midseason of how accurate that poll is."
San Francisco was picked to win the women's conference title. The Cougars received one first place vote. Portland was picked third and also received one first place vote.
