    The Wesleyan men’s cross country team graduated its top runner from the 2014 season and will certainly miss Evan Bieder '15, who was an NCAA Division III outdoor track qualifier in the 5k. But the Cardinals return the remainder of the team for the 2015 season. Last year's squad had a solid season, placing 14th of 40 teams in the Paul Short Run at Lehigh, eighth of 11 in the ultra-competitive NESCAC and 10th of 54 in the New England Division III Meet. Eight of the top 10 teams in the region were NESCAC squads including team champion Colby and runner-up Amherst.
