“The men and women had a solid day,” said coach Stefanie Slekis “Having both teams finish where they were ranked by the by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll was a great achievement for our team.”

The Mean Green men moved up seven spots collectively and the women eight from their previous run at the regional championships.

“I’m very proud of how the team took on the new training this fall and stepped up to compete at every race throughout the season,” said Slekis. “This cross country season is just the start of what the Mean Green can accomplish and I’m excited to join the rest of the Track & Field this January.”
