The Colorado Buffaloes men’s and women’s cross country teams are both ranked in the top 20 after the latest U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Coaches Top 30 poll.
The women moved up one spot from 21st to 20th with 124 points while the men remained sixth in the poll with 303 points. Both teams haven’t competed since the preseason rankings were released. The USTFCCCA released its poll Tuesday.
The men are ranked first in the NCAA Mountain region, while the women rank second in the region behind Northern Arizona University.
For the second straight poll, the Washington Huskies’ women’s team and the Oregon Ducks’ men’s team are the top ranked teams in the nation.
The Buffs will host their second meet of the season, the Rocky Mountain Shootout, on Saturday at Buffalo Ranch at CU-Boulder South. The women’s 5.8 kilometer race begins at 9:15 a.m. while the men’s 8k race starts at 10 a.m.
