Women’s Cross Country Team Earns Best Ranking in Program History
After recent success the Ole Miss women’s cross country team set a new personal best in this week’s USTFCCCA Coaches’ Poll, climbing to their highest ranking in program history at No. 16.
The women made a nine-spot jump from last week’s No. 25 ranking. They also held onto the No. 1 ranking in the USTFCCCA South Regional Rankings for the second straight week.
The ranking comes after a second-place finish at the Penn State National Open this past weekend, their third top-three finish this season. The success is headed up by veteran runners like seniors Mary Alex England and Bo Ummels and juniors Emily Bean and Shelby Brown.
“The ranking is a sweet reflection of our hard work over the season and motivation to continue improving,” England said. “We have a lot of racing left this season, and we’re excited to see how well our team can compete.”
“It feels amazing that our hard work is recognized, but it doesn’t mean that we are already there,” Ummels said. “We will keep working and pushing each other so we can be successful as championship season continues.”
“It’s awesome to get our name out there,” Bean said. “Each race is an opportunity to prove we belong where we are ranked, so that keeps us motivated.”
“It’s awesome to be ranked,” Brown said. “But there’s still work to be done and races to run so we’re not turning our focus to the ranking, but to hard work so we can finish high at SECs and NCAAs.”
The Rebel men have also been ranking in the polls all season, currently sitting at No. 11 in the Coaches’ Poll and No. 1 in the South Region.
The Rebels will be back in action on Friday October 28, for the SEC Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Rebel women were projected to finish fifth at this meet at the beginning of the season and the men were projected to finish second.
