Bearcat Cross Country jumps in Regional Polls


NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Northwest Missouri State men's and women's cross country teams both improved in the week one regional poll as released by U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The Bearcat men and women both improved one spot, but the one spot was a big jump for both teams as the polls saw relatively little movement. It came almost a week after both teams finished successful runs at the Woody Greeno Invitational in Lincoln, Neb.

The Northwest men jumped to No. 6 in the South Central Region, switching places with perennial power Missouri Southern. Central Missouri remains the highest ranking MIAA team at No. 2 while East Central (Okla.) held onto the top spot.

On the women's side, Northwest moved from No. 6 to No. 5 after a great showing in Lincoln. The Bearcats, paced behind Angela Adams still trail a number of MIAA teams including power Missouri Southern at No.2 and Truman at No. 3, neither of which changed from the preseason poll. Midwestern State also held onto the No. 1 spot.

Both teams have the weekend off before heading to the Emporia State Invitational, Sept. 30.
