    Indiana Men’s Cross Country Ranked Fifteenth In The Nation and Second In The Region

    Bloomington, Ind.--When Indiana was ranked 24th in the nation in the October 16th poll, sophomore Chris Powers said, “We are happy, but we feel that we can do better than our performance at Pre-NCAA’s. We know that we are a top ten or top fifteen team.” And, prior to the Notre Dame Invitational held on October 6th, sophomore/freshman Bart Phariss declared, “When people think of cross country in the state of Indiana, they should think of Indiana University as the best, not Notre Dame.”
    Following their second place team finish at the Big Ten Championship, which is their highest finish in twenty years, on Sunday, October 29th in Madison, Wisconsin, the Hoosiers are emerging from the fog towards their destiny. In the most recent United States Cross Country Coaches Association poll release, Indiana University is ranked 15th in the nation and 2nd in the Great Lakes Region behind Wisconsin and above Notre Dame (3).
