Cross-Country Squads Move Up in Polls
Oct. 3, 2001
SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington's women's cross-country squad moved up one spot to 16th in this week's FinishLynx Women's Cross-Country rankings, following senior Sabrina Monro's win at the prestigious Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday. Washington totaled 122 points, while first-place Colorado received 11 of 12 first-place votes to earn 324 total points.
The Huskies were the fourth-highest ranked team from the Pac-10 conference, following No. 2 Stanford (311), No. 4 Arizona State (270) and No. 9 Arizona (220). UCLA, ranked 18th, was the only other Pac-10 team to crack the top-25.
The Husky men's squad, buoyed by a top-20 placing at the Griak meet, earned two votes in the MONDO Men's Rankings, good for 34th. Colorado, with 14 of 16 first-place votes, took the top spot, followed by Stanford and Arkansas, which each received one first-place nod.
Both the Husky men's and women's squads are off this week in preparation for the elite Pre-National meet on the site of next month's NCAA Championships in Greeneville, S.C.
