Xavier again collects one point apiece in NAIA polls

November 7, 2011

     NEW ORLEANS — For the fourth straight week Xavier University of Louisiana received one point in both of the NAIA Cross Country Coaches' Top 25 polls. Rankings were announced Sunday and are the last before the NAIA National Championships at Vancouver, Wash., on Nov. 19.
     The Gold Rush tied for 38th place in the men's rankings, and the Gold Nuggets tied for 42nd in the women's.
     Both the Rush and the Nuggets will compete in the national meet with automatic bids by virtue of winning team titles at the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Championships on Oct. 22.
     Oklahoma Christian's men are No. 1 for the fifth consecutive poll, and Azusa Pacific's women are top-ranked for the eighth consecutive time. The defending national team champions are the men of No. 4 Southern Oregon and the women of No. 2 Cal State San Marcos.
     A postseason poll will be announced Nov. 23.
