DII Regional Cross Country Rankings: 2012 Week #3

 

October 2, 2012  

 

NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released week three regional rankings for the NCAA Division II 2012 season. Edinboro’s men (Atlantic region) and Stonehill’s men (East region) are new No. 1s in their respective regions.

 

New teams to the regional top ten include U-Mary’s men (Central region), Saint Rose’s men (East), Cedarville’s men (Midwest), Montevallo’s men (Southeast), LIU Post’s women (East), North Alabama’s women (South), West Texas A&M’s women (South Central), Eastern New Mexico’s women (South Central), Dallas Baptist’s women (South Central), and Northwest Nazarene’s women (West).

 

The No. 1 men’s teams by region are: Edinboro (Atlantic), Augustana (S.D.) (Central), Stonehill (East), Grand Valley State (Midwest), Alabama-Huntsville (South), Adams State (South Central), Mount Olive (Southeast), Chico State (West). Top women’s teams include Shippensburg (Atlantic), Augustana (S.D.) (Central), Stonehill (East), Grand Valley State (Midwest), Tampa (South), Adams State (South Central), UNC Pembroke (Southeast), and Alaska Anchorage (West).

 

Regions in DII are determined by conference affiliation. Many from the Central and South Central regions switched regions for the 2012 season. Most notably, the MIAA went from the South Central to Central regions and the RMAC was switched to the South Central region from the Central.

NCAA Division II Regional Championships will be held on Saturday, November 3 and Sunday, November 4.

 

USTFCCCA Regional Cross Country Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighing returning team strength with current-season results in determining predicted team finishes at the NCAA Regional Championships.
