Huskies remain #1 in USTFCCCA rankings...

NEW ORLEANS – The Washington Huskies remained the top ranked team in the women’s Division I cross country poll. However, the Huskies lost three first-place votes in the poll this week, as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the women’s poll on Tuesday.

Washington received 9 first-place votes and 357 points overall, while second-ranked Oregon picked up the remaining three first-place votes and 350 points. Both Washington and Oregon will be in action this weekend as Washington will travel east to Terre Haute for the Indiana State Pre-Nationals event on Saturday while Oregon will stay in-state and compete at the Mike Hodges Invitational at Clackamas Community College. All-in-all 23 of the women’s top 30 ranked teams will be in Terre Haute for the annual event.

No. 3 Florida State, No. 4 Minnesota, No. 5 Princeton, and No. 6 Stanford will also be traveling to Terre Haute this coming weekend. No. 7 West Virginia will be at Penn State this weekend for the Penn State Invitational.

Eighth-ranked Arizona State and ninth-ranked Michigan State will run at the Pre-Nationals event. No. 10 Arkansas hosts the Chile Pepper Festival this weekend and will welcome No. 23 SMU and No. 29 Texas Tech to Fayetteville.
