NASHVILLE, Tenn.-The Lipscomb Lady Bisons moved up four spots this week in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross County Coaches Association’s regional rankings.
The Lady Bisons are in ninth place in the South Region after a fourth place finish Saturday in the Crimson Classic hosted by the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
North Florida, the only other A-Sun team ranked in the regional ratings, dropped two spots to 11th.
"The upward move in the NCAA I South Regional polls reflected what we saw on Saturday, a nice improvement over the past two meets and some positive momentum,” Lipscomb cross country coach Bill Taylor said. “It also reflected that we have a ways to go to be where we want to be.
“The girls don't look at the rankings, so it doesn't matter from a team standpoint. But, of course, for the program it's always better to be moving up in rankings than dropping down.”
Last week the Lady Bisons, the defending A-Sun Champions, were ranked second in the conference poll, one point behind North Florida. The new poll will be released later in the week.
The next race is the A-Sun Championships Oct. 27 in Fort Myers, Fla.
