Mountain Lions at No. 31 in Latest National Rankings

By Jared Verner published September 26, 2012

NEW ORLEANS - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's cross country moved to No. 31 after the second poll of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association was released this morning. The Mountain Lions dropped one spot after two new teams entered the top 35 rankings over the weekend.

UCCS finished second in last week's South Central Regional Preview meet in Denver and two points behind Adams State, the second-ranked team in this poll. The Mountain Lions also posted a strong performance at the season-opening meet in the non-scoring Rust Buster.

The Mountain Lions are one of four RMAC teams ranked in the poll, along with No. 2 Adams, No. 4 Western State and No. 20 Colorado Mines. The four teams from a single conference only trailed the five teams from the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

UCCS will be back in action this Saturday for the 27th Annual Roy Griak Invitational at the University of Minnesota. It will be the first trip to the Griak Invitational in program history.
