Huskies move up to #3, while Cougars claw back into the USTFCCCA national top 30...

NEW ORLEANS--The NCAA Regional Championships in Division I did not shift around the nation’s top three, but everything else was up-for-grabs in the USTFCCCA’s final regular-season National Cross Country Coaches’ Poll released Tuesday.

Wisconsin’s men remain the No. 1 team in the country for the second-straight voting week and will look to knock off two-time defending champion No. 2 Oklahoma State next Monday at the NCAA Championships. Florida State’s women are also No. 1 and are looking to unseat two-time defending national champion No. 2 Villanova in a few days.

On the women's side, Greg Metcalf's Washington Huskies (left/photo by Paul Merca), the winners of the NCAA West Regionals in Palo Alto, moved up three notches from #6 to #3.

Pete Julian's Washington State squad, buoyed by their fourth place finish at Saturday's NCAA West Regionals, moved back into the national top 30 with a #27 ranking in the latest poll.

The NCAA Division I national cross country championships are slated for Monday at the LaVern Gibson Course located at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center in Terre Haute, Indiana.

The men’s race will begin at approximately 12:08 p.m. ET, followed by the women’s race at approximately 12:58 p.m. A live webcast of the championships will be broadcast from noon to 1:30 p.m. ET on NCAA.com.
