Gopher Men Move to No. 22 in USTFCCCA National Poll

April 9, 2013

MINNEAPOLIS  – After picking up nine titles at the Hamline Invitational this weekend, the Minnesota men’s outdoor track and field team has been ranked 22nd in the nation in this week’s U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA) poll.

The Gophers earned 87.69 points in this week’s national poll, moving down two positions after opening the outdoor season with two-straight polls at No. 19.

Minnesota is one of six Big Ten programs ranked in this week’s poll. Only the Southeast Conference has more teams in the poll with eight. Texas A&M, Arkansas, Florida, Oregon and Texas make up the top five teams in this week’s rankings.

The Gophers will have an opportunity to improve its poll positioning this weekend. The main Maroon and Gold contingency will head to Fayetteville, Ark., for the John McDonnell Invitational while the Gophers will also send competitors to a pair of local meets in the St. Thomas Tomcat Twilight and the Holst Invitational.
