LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's women's cross country team was picked to finish fifth in the Mountain West Preseason Poll, released Thursday by the conference office, as voted on by the coaches. The Aggie men's team garnered the sixth-spot in their poll.
The Aggie women earned 61 points from voters, while their male counterparts received a total of 22 points. Both the women's and the men's poll were topped by New Mexico, last year's Mountain West Champions on both the women's and men's side.
