LOGAN, Utah - Utah State men's cross country team received one vote and ranks No. 39 in that nation in the latest United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) top-30 coaches poll that was released Tuesday.
USU is the only Western Athletic Conference school receiving votes along with being the second school from the state of Utah to receive votes, with BYU at No. 3. Additionally, the Aggie men are ranked at No. 4 for the Mountain Region for the third-straight week.
"I am honored that those voting think we are good enough to be in the top 30," said Utah State veteran head coach Gregg Gensel. "I am just happy with our teams running one race at a time and getting better each race."
The Aggie men's cross country team won their sixth WAC Cross Country Championship in the last seven years with Gensel being named Coach of the Year and senior captain Brian McKenna was named Athlete of the Year after winning the WAC individual title.
This is the first time since joining the WAC that a USU cross country team has received votes for the top-30 coaches poll.
The Utah State men and women's cross country teams will return to action on Nov. 12 at the 2011 NCAA Mountain Region Championships, hosted by BYU, in Orem, Utah.
The top 15 finishers of both the men and women at the NCAA Mountain Region Championships will then move on to the NCAA Championships on Nov. 21 in Terre Haute, Ind.
