UMW Cross Country Teams Climb in Regional Rankings

The University of Mary Washington women's cross country team climbed to fifth in the region, while the men moved up to seventh in this week's USCCTFCAA weekly poll.

It was another heavy week of shuffling in the regional D-III rankings as conference championships cleared the landscape ... Middlebury's men made their presence known with a surprising showing at the NESCAC Championships where they took the crown and, as a result, is rewarded with a No. 1 ranking in their region, jumping from No. 7 ... Centre College's men is making its latest appeal for the top portion of the South/Southeast region as the move back to No. 2, they were the region's preseason No. 1 ... the West region was turned on its head a bit after the results of the Northwest Conference and SCAC came known ... Whitworth is now ranked No. 1 in the West, followed by new No. 2 Colorado College.

 

... On the women's side of the coin, SUNY Cortland is bumped up to No. 2 in the Atlantic region ... Calvin remains No. 1 in the Great Lakes for the sixth-straight week, but Hope and Ohio Northern rejoin the top three at 2-3, respectively ... Washington (Mo.) moves back to the top spot in the Midwest region after a rousing title defense of the UAA title ...

 

Making appearances in the rankings for the first time this season ... MEN - Vassar (Atlantic, 10th), Swarthmore (Mideast, 9th), Saint Vincent (Mideast, 10th), George Fox (West, 10th) ...WOMEN - SUNY Oneonta (Atlantic, 10th), Central (Iowa) (Central, 10th), Manchester (Great Lakes, 8th).
