LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's cross country moved up to No. 4 in the latest U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Mountain Regional rankings. The women's team moved ahead of Utah to move from No. 5 to No. 4. The Aggie men remained at No. 7 as the top seven teams all remained the same.
In Utah State's first race two weeks ago, the women's team claimed the team victory with 15 points to defeat Weber State (56) and Utah (79). Junior Alyssa Snyder won the individual title, finishing the 5-kilometer race in 17:39.35. It was Snyder's first race as an Aggie after transfering from Montana State.
On the men's side, senior Dillon Maggard won the 7-kilometer race with a time of 21:12.62, helping guide the Aggies to a first-place team finish, as USU's 22 points were enough to defeat Weber State, which finished with 37.
Utah State is back in action in this weekend at the BYU Autumn Classic in Provo, Utah, on Saturday, Sept. 16.
Utah State will also host the Steve T. Reeder Memorial on Friday, Oct. 6, as well as the NCAA Mountain Region Championships on Friday, Oct. 27.
