Husky men back in USTFCCCA national rankings for the first time since 2009...

NEW ORLEANS--After this past weekend's Pre-Nationals meet in Terre Haute, and the Wisconsin adidas Invitational meet in Madison, there was a significant move in the USTFCCCA's national Division I coaches' poll, released Tuesday.

On the men's side, the defending Pac-12 champions from the University of Colorado take the number one spot, followed by Northern Arizona, Oklahoma State, Oregon and BYU.

The University of Portland, Wisconsin, Iona, New Mexico, and Columbia round out the national top ten.

Greg Metcalf's University of Washington Huskies are ranked #25 in the poll, after their 15th place finish in Madison. The UW makes it into the national top 30 for the first time since week 5 of the 2009 season, which was the last time the Dawgs ran in the NCAA championship meet.

Stanford is the only other Pac-12 team in the men's national rankings, coming in at #13.

On the women's side, the Huskies' ninth place performance at the Wisconsin adidas Invitational dropped Washington out of the national top five, as they're now ranked #13 in the coaches' poll.

The top five consists of the University of Arizona, who won the Wisconsin meet, followed by Arkansas, Georgetown, Providence, and Florida State.

Rounding out the top ten are Michigan State, Butler, Iowa State, New Mexico, and Virginia.

Among the other Pac-12 schools in the national rankings, Oregon is ranked #12, Colorado is #16, Stanford is #20, and Arizona State is #16.
