Wednesday, October 17, 2012
The Calvin cross country teams are on the move. Both teams have moved up in the latest set of Division III Top 35 rankings released by the United States Track and Field Cross Country Coaches Association. In this week’s poll, the Calvin men are ranked second nationally, up four spots from a week ago. The Knights also received three of a possible eight first place votes in this week’s poll. Top-ranked Haverford (PA) received the other five first place votes. On the women’s side, Calvin is ranked sixth, up two spots from a week ago.
Both Calvin teams are coming off of banner performances last weekend at the Wisconsin-Oshkosh Brooks Invitational where the Calvin men’s team took first place with 52 points, finishing six points ahead of (previously) top-ranked North Central while the Calvin women’s team took first place with 91 points.
Both Calvin teams are preparing for the MIAA Championships slated to be held October 27 at the Whiffletree Golf Course in Concord, Michigan.
