NEW ORLEANS, La. – The University of Memphis men's cross country squad climbed three spots in the latest U.S. Track and Field/Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) South Region poll, which was released late Monday. The Tigers jumped up from No. 13 to No. 10.
The No. 10 USTFCCCA South Region ranking is the highest since the Tigers finished ninth in 2012. The No. 10 ranking is the second-highest, regular-season regional ranking in program history. That same 2012 squad was No. 9 in the next-to-last regular-season poll.
Memphis' three-spot jump tied for the second-largest move in the USTFCCCA South Region poll.
