XC: Men's cross country vaults to sixth in regional ranking
Oct. 30, 2012
ARLINGTON, Texas – After winning the Western Athletic Conference title on Saturday, the UT Arlington men’s cross country team has jumped up two spots to sixth in the USTFCCCA Regional Rankings. It is the highest that the squad has been ranked in 20 years.
The two-spot improvement was the biggest positive move by any school in the South Central Region this week. The team is now positioned behind only Texas, Arkansas, Texas A&M, McNeese State and Lamar heading into the NCAA South Central Regionals, which will be held in Fayetteville, Ark., on Friday, Nov. 9.
In five meets this year, the men have posted three victories, one runner-up finish and a sixth-place showing.
The women’s squad, which finished fifth at the WAC meet, fell two spots but remained in the poll, placing 15th.
