NEW ORLEANS—Imagine the eight regions of NCAA Division III cross country as a cheese pizza that defies all laws of heat and physics. Seven of the eight slices are beginning to congeal, but the cheese on the eighth slice remains boiling hot, sliding off the bread and just generally rejecting all attempts at containment. That eighth slice is the New England Region. The Regional Team Rankings, released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field Cross Country Coaches Association, saw minimal movement and the same No. 1 teams in 14 of 16 regions inclu...

NEW ORLEANS—National polling archives for NCAA Division I Cross Country date back to 1998 for men and ’95 for women. During that time, never have two schools from one state claimed the top two ranks in either sex’s national poll. Not until today, at least. The women of No. 1 Michigan and new No. 2 Michigan State made history in the week three edition of the National Coaches Polls released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), as the Spartans moved past now-No. 3 Oregon with a deci...

Dennis Kimetto snags FloRunner of the Week

The former subsistence farmer from Eldoret, Kenya blazed his way to a marathon world record of 2:02:57 Sunday in Berlin, which took 26 seconds off of Wilson Kipsang’s previous world record.

Kimetto was only running four miles a day when he ran into New York City and Boston marathon record-holder Geoffrey Mutai in 2010. Mutai convinced Kimetto to join his training group, which eventually led to th...
