For the third consecutive week the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs women's cross country team held onto its No. 8 national ranking in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association poll.

The Mountain Lions did not compete this past weekend but still retained the ranking they've held since the preseason poll was released.

UCCS will attend the Colorado College Invitational on Saturday, the only in-town competition the Mountain Lions will have this season. The meet will be held at Monument Valley Park with the women's race starting at 9 a.m.

A panel of Division II cross country coaches vote in the weekly USTFCCCA polls.
