LOGAN, Utah - After conference championship weekend, the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) national poll saw significant changes.
Among those changes, the Aggie women's team moved to No. 15 in the nation, while the men's team moved into a tie for No. 23. This is the sixth-straight week that the women's team has been ranked, and it is the third-consecutive week in the national polls for the men's team.
Last week, the Aggies competed at the Mountain West Championships. The women's team placed third with 73 points, while the men's team placed fourth with 93 points.
Individually, senior Dillon Maggard paced the men by finishing third, good for first-team all-MW, in the men's 8-kilometer race with a time of 23:54.45, while junior Alyssa Snyder also earned first-team all-conference honors by placing sixth with a time of 20:55.40 in the 6-kilometer race.
Senior Tylee Skinner and junior Kashley Carter also earned all-conference honors, as the duo landed on the all-MW second team after placing 10th and 13th with times of 21:19.67 and 21:22.02, respectively.
In the regional polls released on Monday, the women's team remained the No. 3 team in the Mountain Region, while the men's team remained at No. 7.
The Aggies are back in action in two weeks when they host the NCAA Mountain Region Championships on Friday, Nov. 10. The race is scheduled to begin at 10:15 a.m. at the Steve and Dona Reeder Cross Country Course.
