Central Climbs in Men’s Cross Country Regional Rankings

Central College jumped one spot in the third week of the regional men’s cross country rankings produced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. The Dutch jumped Iowa Conference rival Loras to claim the No. 2 spot in the Central Region after being ranked third for the first two weeks of the season. The only team the Dutch is looking up at in the rankings is St. Olaf of Minnesota. Central is also ranked 25th in the national poll. The Dutch men have claimed team titles at their first two meets and took second in a seven-team field at the Grand View Viking Invitational Sept. 21 competing without many of their top runners. Next up on the docket for Central is a trip to St. Paul, Minnesota Saturday for the Roy Griak Invitational. The women’s squad is scheduled to compete at 9 a.m. and the men will race at 10:40 a.m.
