Brandeis University

After being in the top 10 in the national rankings for most of the season, the men's team has hit hard times in the past few weeks. The No. 25-ranked squad has not raced much this season, riding on their reputation for the ranking. Led by the experienced senior Paul Norton, who finished 2nd at the UAA Championships last year, the Brandeis men's team is expected to finish in the top four of the conference.

The women's team has also raced conservatively this season. With only two full races under their belt, the women Judges come into the championships unranked nationally. Senior Grayce Selig has run very well the past few weeks, and could be pushing for a top-five finish individually. From previous performances, it is apparent that the women's team overall won't be threatening their UAA rivals for a place on the podium.

Runners to watch: senior's Paul Norton and Grayce Selig
