2017 NJCAA DIII Cross Country National Rankings — Week 4

NEW ORLEANS – With just three days until the NJCAA Division III Cross Country National Championships, not much changed from week three to week four in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) National Rankings, announced on Wednesday.

With very few upsets at the regional meets, the rankings are quite similar to what was released two weeks ago. The top nine men’s teams held onto their respective spots in the rankings, while one new women’s team shook things up by jumping into the top-10 at sixth.
