The bears conclude their day of racing in Louisville, KY!

The Blue Race men set the bar high this morning with a pack time of just 52 seconds from runner 1 to 5. Senior Caden Sauerbrey led the charge, crossing the finish line in 26:27. Freshman Corey Rinehart and sophomore Jared Swartz both ran new PRs.

The blue race women followed, covering the 5k course in a pack time of 35 seconds. Freshman Larkin Warner led the way, crossing the finish line in a new lifetime best.

In the men’s Pre-National race, sophomore Billy Driemeyer led the way, setting a new PR of 25:37 and placing 48 overall. Sophomores Ian Ackenhausen and Kyle Roth both set new PRs as well. The men finished 16th overall.

To conclude the day, senior Tessa Pitcovich placed 18th overall in the women’s Pre-National race, leading the women’s team to a 9th place finish. The top 5 performers for Northern all crossed the finish line under 24:30, and all seven women ran aggressively from the start.

Headed back to the 419 and into another week of training!

At the beginning of every season, Coach Maus holds a team meeting to review the team policies, policies that have been in place for over a decade.

The women’s team decided to exercise this loophole when they showed up for the the bus ride to Louisville , KY this morning. Jean-ius move, bears! 🔥👖

Results from last night’s Findlay Invitational are in! The women placed 4th of 9 teams entered, and the men finished 5th of 10 teams entered.

Freshman Ashley Hockstok led the way in the women’s race, placing 23rd in 24:58 for her first collegiate 6k, while Sophomore Aaron Guzman ran a smart race with a gutsy back half to lead the men, finishing 27th in 26:54. Both paved the way in a race that produced several shiny new PRs for our polar bears. The coaching staff was very proud to see everyone bounce back after a tough All-Ohio meet. Choosing a Polar Bear Award winner this week will be challenging!

The P-Bears will return to action this Friday evening at Hillcrest Golf Course in Findlay, OH for the second annual Findlay Invitational.

We’ll be running a partial roster, as some of our squad will take this weekend off to prepare for a sneak peak at the national course in Louisville, KY next weekend.

Regardless, our P-Bears stepping to the line tomorrow have some big goals and a great opportunity to compete against some competitive schools in the region. The women will start the action at 5:30pm, with the men to follow at 6:15pm.

Go Bears!

Did you know?

The last time ONU hosted a cross country meet on campus was 2012. This Saturday, 9 years later, history will repeat itself as ONU XC opens up their season at the 2021 Polar Bear Invitational.

You may even recognize some of these faces from 2012 this weekend, as it is a long-standing tradition to invite program alumni back to campus to compete and/or spectate. So keep an eye out on the course! You may just see an ONU celebrity 👀

Parents, alums, fellow polar bears: we welcome you to campus this Saturday Sept 4 at 10am to cheer on our ONU men and 10:45am to cheer on our women as we come together to celebrate ONU history 🎉

Who’s that army of runners making its way across campus? 👀

With 76 athletes, ONU welcomed its largest XC team in school history to campus yesterday! The men and women took to the roads today for their first official workout of the season before hitting the grass for our traditional 2M time trial this Saturday morning. The sun was strong and the pace was brisk, but man, it’s good to be back!

Please join us in welcoming some more new P-Bears to the family, this time to our coaching staff!

Our current staff of Head Coach Jason Maus and Assistant Coaches Molly Amidon, Jason Fisher, and Emily Richards will grow a little larger this year with the addition of Assistant Coaches @coach_willbuel and @hannnahteee. We are thrilled to welcome each of them to the team, as they both come with unique perspectives and experiences in the sport of track and field and cross country.

Coach Buelsing, a graduate of the University of Indianapolis and former multi-event athlete will fill the role of full-time jumps coach, working directly with our horizontal and vertical jump squads. He has previous coaching experience at Mount Saint Joseph University and Colerain HS, as well as a pole vault club in the Cincinnati area. He follows Assistant Jumps Coach Casey Gantt, who loyally served the ONU XC/T&F programs for 10 years before moving back home to Illinois with his family this summer. We are so grateful to Coach Gantt for his commitment and contribution to our programs and so excited to bring Coach Buelsing into this new role!

Coach Thompson, a standout distance athlete coming to us from Malone University, will fill the role of Assistant XC and T&F Coach, working primarily with the long distances. She holds Malone school records in the 5k, 10k, and steeplechase, and is a 5x NCAA DII national qualifier and 2x NCAA DII All-American. This fall, she will join the staff of Maus, Richards, and Amidon, who recently moved into the role of Assistant XC Coach on top of her role working with our sprinters and hurdlers during track season.

Welcome, coaches!!

Great job today Bears! 🧡❄️🐻🖤
Go get em today Bears! 🧡🖤❄️🐻 #onuxc #allohio We believe in you!!!
Saw this on the Findlay Xc page (in case you missed this news...) FYI: Cedarville will be charging $8 for parking
The start of the men’s race today. What a thrill to watch them run again.
What an amazing finish to the OAC meet with the 4x400 men taking 2nd and pulling the men’s team up to 3rd place. Congratulations to all of the athletes this season! You have been a joy to watch. Good luck to those who are competing over the next two weeks and on to nationals. 🧡🖤🧡🖤
What time do the long jump and triple jump start tomorrow?
Mike Becraft Invitational Group 3 of 3 quite possibly the best 4x400 race I have ever seen... or at least the most fun. Congrats to the seniors.

Pics from the Mike Becraft Invitational this weekend. Group 1 of 3
A few pics from the OAC elite meet at Otterbein last weekend. Congratulations to both teams. This time around... a lot of steeple chase and a lot of pole vault.
Track meet at Heidelberg 4-10-21 All of the running events are posted... sorry to the field events (although I saw some familiar pole vaulters in the 100m today!) Feel free to tag yourself or "steal" any of the photos...
