BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - After receiving one vote last week, the Indiana men's cross country team broke into the top-30 of this week's United State Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Poll ranked 28th with 38 points.
The Hoosiers boasted six runners who finished the regional 10K race in under 32 minutes, including All-American Jordan Kyle, who finished fifth overall with a time of 30:49.51. Kyle, along with freshman Cole Hardacre (21st, 31:27.53) and redshirt junior Mark Fruin (25th, 31:38.50), each earned all-region honors for finishing among the top-25.
IU's finish at the regional meet earned an at-large bid to the 2007 NCAA Cross Country Championships, which will take place on Monday, Nov. 19 at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course located at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center in Terre Haute, Ind. The men's 10K race is slated for 12 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on CSTV.
