FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas men’s cross country team continued to hold onto the No. 1 spot in the latest United States Cross Country Coaches Association’s (USCCCA) MONDO poll released on Tuesday morning. The Razorbacks received 476 points and more first place votes, increasing their total to 12. In the last poll the Hogs were given nine first place nods.

UA has established itself as the clear frontrunner to take the team title, as last year’s runner-up, Wisconsin, has four first-place votes and 459 points. Colorado, the 2004 NCAA champion, tallied 452 points and Stanford moved up to No. 4 with 432 points. Notre Dame also climbed to the No. 5 position with 404 points.

Other Southeastern Conference schools ranked in the top 30 include Florida at No. 8 and Alabama at No. 20. Arkansas and Texas (No. 12) remain the only two teams from the South Central Region to be nationally ranked.

The Hogs will take this week off as they prepare for the SEC Cross Country Championships on Oct. 29, in Columbia, S.C. Arkansas will be looking to extend one of the longest tenured championship streaks in collegiate athletics history as the Razorbacks go for their 32nd-consecutive conference cross country title, including their 15th-straight since entering the SEC in 1991. Arkansas won 17-consecutive Southwest Conference cross country crowns from 1974-90.
