Gophers Maintain No. 8 Ranking in USTFCCCA Poll

Jan. 23, 2013

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota men's track & field team maintained its No. 8 ranking in the first regular-season U. S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) poll, released on Tuesday. 

The Gophers are coming off a first-place finish at the Jack Johnson Invitational last weekend with the program picking up 11 individual event titles at the home meet. 

Minnesota, which was  also ranked No. 8 in the USTFCCCA preseason poll, remained in the top 10 in this week's poll and ranked second in the Big Ten behind Indiana at No. 7. Wisconsin came in at No. 10 in this week's poll while Penn State just missed out on a top 10 ranking at No. 12. Arkansas -- last year's NCAA runner-up -- boasts the nation's No. 1 ranking. 

Minnesota returns to action next weekend with a pair of meets – the squad will split between the Bill Bergan Classic in Ames, Iowa and the Warren Bolus Open in Menomonie, Wis. Both events are slated for Saturday, Jan. 26.
