BOISE, Idaho—The Boise State women’s cross country team made history Tuesday when the program garnered its highest US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) national top-30 ranking. In the first weekly ranking of the season, the women sit at No. 19 in their second-ever national weekly ranking.

The women’s program jumped from the ‘receiving votes’ section in the preseason rankings, where they held 22 votes. After an impressive showing at the Utah Open claiming first, second, fourth and fifth-place finishes, the women are one of the nation’s top-30 teams.

Last season the women’s program made its first-ever appearance in the national weekly poll, sitting No. 25 after a notable third-place finish at the Bill Dellinger Invitational.

In the USTFCCCA weekly regional rankings, the women rank fourth and the men sit ninth in the West.

The Broncos will head to the Roy Griak Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 27.
