Logan, Utah -
Utah State’s women’s cross country team moved down one spot to ninth in the most recent Mountain Regional Team Rankings, announced Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The Aggie men remained in the 11th slot.
Four other Mountain West women’s teams joined Utah State in the poll. New Mexico remained in the top spot and was joined by Air Force (6th), Colorado State (10th) and Wyoming (14th).
On the men’s side, four other Mountain West members were ranked in the top-15 in the region. USU is joined by New Mexico (4th), Colorado State (5th), Air Force (6th) and Wyoming (8th).
Additionally, four other women’s teams from the state of Utah were picked in the top-15. BYU (3rd), Weber State (5th), Utah (7th) and Southern Utah (13th) join the Aggies in the rankings.
Utah State’s men are one of five teams from the Beehive State that are ranked in the Mountain Region Poll. Along with USU, BYU (3rd), Southern Utah (7th), Weber State (13th) and Utah Valley (14th) are ranked.
USTFCCCA Regional Cross Country Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighing returning team strength with current-season results in determining predicted team finishes at the NCAA Regional Championships.
This past weekend saw the Aggies compete in the Indiana State-hosted NCAA Pre-Nationals in Terre Haute, Ind. Facing a field of 52 teams, the Utah State men took 33rd, while the USU women placed 43rd out of 49 teams.
Next up on the docket for the Aggie harriers is the Mountain West Championships, to be hosted by the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. on Friday, Nov. 1.
