Bulls Earn Regional Ranking
Women's cross country team ranked 12th in latest USTFCCCA poll
BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo women's cross country team is ranked 12th in the Northeast region according the latest poll released this morning by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
The Bulls garnered the ranking thanks to strong performances at the UB Stampede Invitational on September 20 and the Spartan Invitational on September 12. UB finished third at its home meet, trailing just Akron and Bucknell, ranked fifth and sixth, respectively in their regions and ahead of Binghamton, ranked 13th, one spot behind the Bulls in the Northeast poll. Providence leads the current poll with Boston College ranked second.
This is the second time that the Bulls have appeared in a national cross country poll. The women's team was ranked 40th among 42 teams, earning two points, on the FinishLynx Top 30 national poll, released on September 29, 2004. The team earned the spot after their strong performance at the Lehigh Paul Short Invitational where they finished sixth as the five teams ahead of the Bulls all ranked in the top 30.
The Bulls return to the Paul Short meet this Friday.
