The NCAA Cross Country Championships in 2015 were held in Louisville, Kentucky on November 21, 2015.

Fans come to watch the individual battles, but, the majority of fans come to watch the team competition. On the women's side, New Mexico excited many with their women's team win for Division one.

The men's team race was both an upset and a surprise. Syracuse University's victory ended a drought for the Orange of sixty-four years. Coach Chris Fox, a fine runner himself, has developed an exciting team over the past decade.

For the race on November 21, 2015, it was an entire team effort for the Orange. Coach Fox later noted that his fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh men all ran " out of their heads."

Running the races of their lives, Syracuse University's men cross country team upset the defending team from Colorado. The victory put a smile on Coach Fox's face that was seen, still two weeks later, when I congratulated the fine coach in Portland, Oregon at the NXN.

And for that victory, Syracuse is the winner of the SATV+RBR November Male athlete of the Year.

Go, Orange!
