ROMEOVILLE, Ill. – In Week Five of the 2020 Division II Men’s Cross Country National Coaches rankings, the Lewis University men’s cross country program stayed in the Top 10 for the fifth straight week.
The Flyers received 51 points and kept their number eight ranking from last week. Lewis is ranked number one in this week’s conference rankings after winning its first GLVC Cross Country title since 2004 at Principia on Oct. 24.
Colorado School of Mines continues to be the favorite in the national poll, receiving all eight first-place votes.
The committee consists of coaches that volunteered to represent their conference. Division II conferences with teams competing in 2020 are the SAC, LSC, RMAC, MIAA, PBC, GSC, GMAC and GLVC.
Each Monday by 5 p.m. the conference representative submits a ranking of the top six men’s and top six women’s teams in their conference. A team cannot be ranked in their conference or nationally until they have competed this season.
Each Tuesday by 5 p.m. the conference representative submits a national ranking of all of the teams (from the conference rankings) in order from 1-15 for the men’s and women’s teams.
