MSU Cross Country Stays #12 in USTFCCCA Poll

Midwestern State remains entrenched at No. 12 in the latest United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association Division II rankings released Wednesday afternoon.

MSU rolled to its second meet win of the season, dominating the Midwestern State Cross Country Carnival last Saturday at the former Hawk Ridge Golf Course.

Harding surged ahead 11 spots on the strength of winning the Jackling Jocks Invitational hosted by Missouri S&T last weekend. The Bison placed three runners in the top 11 led by Gladys Kimtai who covered the 5K course in 18:27.
 
HU edged No. 16 Pittsburg State by three points in the event. The Gorillas tallied 74 points paced by front runner Melissa Peden's third-place time of 18:11.
 
No. 20 Missouri Southern, No. 22 Truman and No. 25 Northwest Missouri placed third, fourth and sixth respectively while also competing in the Jackling Jocks Invitational.
