Running sucks, but watching it isn't too bad. It's even better watching the men of Boise State bring home the 2016 MWC Cross-Country title on their home
turf grass. Bronco Junior Yusuke Uchikoshi won the men's individual title with a helluva kick and teammate Mike Vennard finished 3rd, helping give the Broncos the requisite points needed to grab the team championship.

The Bronco women finished 3rd at the MWC Championships earlier in the day a Falcon Crest, which is nothing to hang their heads about, although the Broncos' top entrant, Brenna Peloquin, had a bit of disappointment finishing 4th (she was favored to win the women's individual title). Remember, last year's champ Allie Ostrander sat out this XC season while nursing an injury, but had a redshirt to burn so both her and Peloquin will be back next year for a little Bronco comeuppance.
Great job by all Bronco distance runners today...Boise State has become a distance running power in pretty short order and head coach Corey Ihmels has been the architect. Expect many more titles—both team and individual—in the coming months and years.
