By Tom Lewis, USTFCCCA

October 11, 2011   

NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released week five regional rankings for the NCAA Division III 2011 season on Tuesday. Three teams took over as the new top teams in their respective region: St. Lawrence is now the new men’s top team in the Atlantic region, Middlebury is on top of the men’s New England region rankings, and Williams heads the women’s New England standings.

New to the regional top ten for the first time this week are:

MEN – RPI (Atlantic)

WOMEN – Monmouth (Ill.) (Midwest)

NCAA Division III Regional Championships will be held on Saturday, November 12. Championship sites.

USTFCCCA Regional Cross Country Rankings are determined subjectively by either a single member coach or by polling the region’s coaches (each region varies).
