The University of Washington women’s cross country team, fresh off its fourth place finish in the White section of the Brooks Pre-Nationals meet in Terre Haute, Indiana, jumped three spots to number 9 in the latest United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association polls, released today.

Pac-10 rivals Stanford and Oregon hold down the top two spots, while Florida State, Princeton, and the Pac-10’s Arizona State Sun Devils round out the top five.
