As the new season fast approaches this year's ACAA Cross County Running championships will be ups for grabs as the first meet will take place on Saturday September 16, hosted by Mount Allison University.
The season will consist of six members: Holland Hurricanes, Mount Allison Mounties, Université Sainte-Anne, Dal AC Rams, Crandall Chargers and MSVU Mystics competing at three meets being hosted by the following ACAA schools: September 16, 2017 at Mount Allison, September 30, 2017 at Université Sainte-Anne and October 14, 2017 at Mount St. Vincent. The ACAA Championships will be hosted by Holland College.
Last year's defending champions Mount Allison Men will look at keeping their team title intact as the 2017 season unfolds while on the women's side Dal AC is looking to stay on top of the ACAA once again. Looking into the so call crystal ball making predictions of who to watch on both sides can be hard to say but I would look at the newest member to the ACAA running circuit the MSVU Mystics Women who will be a team to watch as they try to dethrone DAL AC. On the men's side it would be a safer bet to see Mount Allison hold off the heard and defend their crown. However, all this being said the unpredictability of ACAA Cross Country will make it a season to follow..... so stay tune to what promise to be an eventful one.
