Men's Cross Country Team Ranked 10th Nationally

Oct. 31, 2000

EUGENE - The Duck men's cross country team climbed two spots in the weekly national poll Tuesday on the heels of a strong Pac-10 Championships effort last weekend.

Head Coach Martin Smith's team entered the meet ranked 13th nationally and finished second overall with a tally of 66 points, ahead of then-No. 10 Arizona (third, 70), then-No. 29 Arizona State (fourth, 114) and then-No. 26 Washington (fifth, 117) in the eight-team race. No. 2 Stanford claimed top team honors at the Seattle-hosted meet.

Among other previously-ranked conference teams in this week's Mondo Men's Cross Country Poll, Stanford remained second, Arizona dropped to 12th, Arizona State fell to 30th and Washington was unranked. Colorado topped the men's poll and received 11 of 16 possible first-place votes.

In the women's poll, the Ducks were without votes for the first time this season after a seventh-place Pac-10 finish.

In the newest FinishLynx Women's Cross Country Rankings, four teams stayed in the top 10 - No.2 Stanford, No. 4 Arizona State, No. 7 Arizona and No. 9 Washington. Last year's NCAA champion, BYU, again led the rankings and claimed all 12 first-place votes.

Next up for both teams is the NCAA Western Regional, Nov. 11 at Woodward Park in Fresno, Calif. The two top teams from the men's and women's races automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships, Nov. 20 in Ames, Iowa, while another 13 teams will be selected nationally to fill out the 31-team NCAA fields based on their regional finishes and regular season records against other potential qualifiers.
