2022 NCAA DIII Women’s Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – Conference Championships Weekend left its mark.

Here is the newest NCAA DIII Women’s Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll for the 2022 season, as released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Remember that this poll is conducted by counting votes from ten member coaches – one from each of the division’s ten regions – who also do the weekly Regional Rankings.

Cross Country Polls & Rankings

No. 1 UChicago (still unanimous), No. 2 Wartburg, No. 16 Bates and No. 32 Centre were the only teams who held their spots from the previous week. Three of those are conference champions – the Maroons (UAA), the Knights (American Rivers) and the Colonels (SAA) – while the Bobcats finished a strong third at the NESCAC Championships.

Otherwise, the teams that were in the top-10 in Week 6 remained there in Week 7 – except for St. Olaf, which dropped three spots from No. 9 to No. 12 – albeit in a different order: SUNY Geneseo moved into a tie with Wartburg for the No. 2 spot after winning another SUNYAC crown; Johns Hopkins is now ranked fourth following another dominating showing at the Centennial Conference Championships; Washington (Mo.) is up to No. 6 thanks to its runner-up effort at the UAA Championships; and Carleton is up to No. 8 from No. 10 following its victory at the MIAC Championships.

UC Santa Cruz, Hope and NYU all cracked the top-25 at No. 18, No. 19 and No. 20, respectively. The Banana Slugs, the Flying Dutch and the Violets all jumped three or more spots.

Trine made the biggest jump out of any team that was ranked in Week 6. The Thunder, who finished a strong third at the MIAA Championships with 52 points, behind Hope (39) and Calvin (50), vaulted 11 spots from No. 35 to No. 24.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 19, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA DIII Cross Country Championships will be held at the Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing, Michigan. Top athletes and teams from the 2022 season will take the course at 11 am ET.
