DII Regional Cross Country Rankings — Week 6

By Tom Lewis, USTFCCCA

October 25, 2011   

NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released week six regional rankings for the NCAA Division II 2011 season on Tuesday. After the division’s conference championship weekend, three new number ones emerged from the previous week. On the men’s side, Western State is the new No. 1 team in the Central region and Stonehill now heads the East. Both squads are in the region’s top spot for the first time this year. On the women’s side, Grand Valley State retakes the top spot in the Midwest region — a spot they held in the preseason rankings.

In addition, several teams are new to the regional top ten this week for the first time this season

MEN – Seton Hill (Atlantic), Fort Hays State (South Central), Saint Martin’s (West)

WOMEN – Wheeling Jesuit (Atlantic), Metro State (Central), Le Moyne (East), Cal State LA (West).
