LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's women's cross country team moved up one spot to No. 21 in the latest U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association national poll, it was announced Tuesday by the organization.
It is a new program-best ranking for the women's team, breaking the previous mark of No. 22 earned last week.
The Aggies had the week off from competition. However, in their last time out, they defeated then-No. 10 BYU on the Cougars' home course. Utah State was led by junior Alyssa Snyder, who placed first in the women's 3-mile race. Senior Kashley Carter and junior Cierra Simmons placed third and fourth, respectively.
In the regional polls released on Monday, both Aggie squads stood pat as there were little changes in the Mountain Region rankings. The women are still No. 3 in the region, while the men are No. 7.
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.
