NEW ORLEANS – Conference Championships this past weekend provided plenty changes, with five of the eight regions seeing adjustments.
Here is the final edition of the NCAA Division II Women’s Cross Country Regional Rankings for the 2022 season, as released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday.
Regional Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighting returning teams’ strength with current season results (if applicable) in determining a rank-order of squad potential. Only USTFCCCA member programs are eligible to receive a ranking. Teams with provisional status within the region may be ranked.
