2022 NCAA DIII Men’s Cross Country Regional Rankings – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – The postseason is rolling along!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA Division III Men’s Cross Country Regional Rankings for the 2022 season, which was released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Regional Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighing 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.

Regional Championships Saturday is set for November 12.
