Fort Lewis and MIT earn collegiate titles

Fort Lewis College, a small college with a bike cycling program in Durango, Colorado, dethroned Lees-McRae College to win the 2007-2008 USA Cycling Collegiate National Team Rankings Division I competition by a single point. In Division II, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology defeated Western Washington University in another tight race. Lees-McRae, a private North Carolina school with an enrollment of less than 800, had to settle for second in its sophomore season in Division I.

Fort Lewis College, a small college with a bike cycling program in Durango, Colorado, dethroned Lees-McRae College to win the 2007-2008 USA Cycling Collegiate National Team Rankings Division I competition by a single point.

In Division II, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology defeated Western Washington University in another tight race.

Lees-McRae, a private North Carolina school with an enrollment of less than 800, had to settle for second in its sophomore season in Division I.

In 2007-08, Lees-McRae and Fort Lewis traded gold and silver team omnium titles at the USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike, Cyclocross, and Road National Championships, resulting in a near points deadlock. The first race of the season — the USA Cycling Collegiate Track National Championships — made the difference because Fort Lewis finished third there, while Lees-McRae was fifth.

With strong performances throughout the season, the Rams of Colorado State University came in third; the University of Colorado-Boulder (42 points) finished fourth, edging the University of California-Davis (42) in a tie-breaker to round out the top five in Division I.Div. 1 Results (.pdf)

In the Division II battle, MIT moved up from last year’s third-place finish, earning the title over Western Washington University, who after earning no points in the track discipline surged late in the season to take the second spot. Both the Colorado School of Mines and the U.S. Military Academy earned 48 points on the season. However the Colorado School of Mines won the tie-breaker with a higher placing (fourth) at the most recent of the four competitions, the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships.
