LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's cross country moved up eight spots in the latest U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) national poll to No. 22.

It is Utah State's highest ranking in school history, besting the previous high of No. 23 in the USCCCA poll in 1998.

The new ranking comes on the heels of the Aggies upsetting then-No. 10 BYU on its home course last weekend, as Utah State posted 23 points to BYU's 32 at the BYU Autumn Classic. The Aggies were led by junior Alyssa Snyder, who placed first in the race. Additionally, the duo of senior Kashley Carter and junior Cierra Simmons also cracked the top-five, placing third and fourth, respectively.

The Utah State men's squad also earned national recognition, as the team earned one vote in the men's poll. Utah State placed second at the BYU Autumn Classic, led by senior Dillon Maggard's second-place individual finish.

Utah State’s men’s and women’s cross country teams return to action when they travel to Bethlehem, Pa., for the Lehigh-hosted Paul Short Run on Friday, Sept. 29. The meet, which is slated to begin at 7:30 a.m. (MT), will take place at the Goodman Campus Cross Country Course.
