Together, SU men’s cross country has clear goal despite young season

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ It’s 3:30 p.m. on the first day of classes. The metal bleachers of the Vielbig Outdoor Track Stadium are filled with the members of the 2010 Syracuse men’s cross country team. Though the thermostat reads 86 degrees at the end of August, the team is focused on head coach Chris Fox’s words before they start practice. With their shoes tied and shirts off, instead of focusing on the heat, the runners are concentrating on the task at hand: repeating as champions. ‘Last year was satisfying.’ Fox said, ‘But we left it a little short at Nationals, I think, so that keeps us motivated for this year.’ A year ago, Syracuse put its name in the history books when it won the Big East and the NCAA Northeast Regional titles for the first time in school history. Fox’s team is looking to build on last year’s success and continue their winning ways as they were just recently ranked preseason No.1 for the Northeast region. Though Fox doesn’t focus on the new No.1 ranking too much, his goals for the season are to repeat as Big East champs and to be ranked in the Top 10 nationally.  To do that, he has an idea of where his team’s focus needs to be this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘For us this whole year is about two meets.’ Fox said. ‘The Big East championship and the national championship.’   Two of the men who will be leading Fox’s pack this fall are Steve Murdock and Tito Medrano. Murdock placed first overall in the Harry Lang Invitational last season, and Medrano became Syracuse’s 15th All-American in school history. He was the first to do so in the past 27 years. Freshman Reed Kamyszek is looking to get his feet wet this fall and is hoping to contribute to the squad whenever he is called upon. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Mich., Kamyszek has been running cross country and track since the 7th grade and will continue to do both this year. With the majority of the focus placed on the upperclassmen, Kamyszek still has some personal goals that he would love to accomplish this year. ‘To be a freshman on the traveling team would be phenomenal,’ Kamyszek said. ‘I know we have a lot of good upperclassmen and incoming freshmen as well. To make that traveling team is definitely my goal.’ The weather always plays a big factor in cross country. This blistering 86-degree day is no different. But Kamyszek believes his experience of running in a contrasting climate ? a cold climate ? will give him a training advantage over his competition. Just as Kamyszek and the other freshmen are looking to make a name for themselves in the cross country program, upperclassmen, such as junior Steve Weeks, want to use last year’s success as a springboard for the future. ‘It was a big stepping stone for the program and for us as individuals,’ Weeks said. ‘Everybody kind of came into their own and grouped together to make sure the season was successful.’ Weeks said winning the Big East is a must. After enjoying the sweet taste of victory from last year’s achievements, Weeks said his teammates are focused and ready to go. With the season set to get underway in Hamilton, N.Y., at the Harry Lang Invitational this Saturday, Fox’s team seems ready to capitalize on the foundation it built last year. The men’s team is primed and ready to go. Even if it is sweating it out as one in those metal bleachers. Said Weeks: ‘Being No.1 doesn’t bother us at all. We’re just going to keep doing what we’ve always been doing. ‘We’re here to stay.’ cjphil01@syr.educenter_img Published on August 29, 2010 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more
