NEW ORLEANS, La. – The USTFCCCA released its weekly national rankings today. NAU men's cross country is on top of the poll for the first time since the beginning of USTFCCCA records in 1995 after taking down former No. 1 Colorado and winning the Mountain Region, perhaps the nation's deepest region.
The Lumberjack men have been ranked within the top-three throughout the entire season. The team will look to uphold their No. 1 ranking this weekend as they compete at the NCAA Cross Country Championships. If NAU is able to defend its No. 1 ranking this weekend it will serve as the first national championship in school history.
