The Broncos were off this past week, but the women’s team made history for the second-straight week when they moved up a spot in the USTFCCCA Coaches’ Poll to No. 6. The ranking is the highest nod for the women’s program in school history. The men were outside of the top 30, but they received 10 votes and are ranked No. 34 if the poll was extended.

MW MIDSEASON POLL: The Mountain West released its midseason coaches’ poll today, and the women’s team held pat at their No. 2 ranking and the men’s team fell one spot from the preseason poll to No. 3. The women received one first-place vote and earned 91 points, and the men picked up 35 points. New Mexico is still the favorite in both polls, and Colorado State slid into second on the men’s side.

ANOTHER ACCOLADE FOR OSTRANDER: Freshman Allie Ostrander was named the Mountain West Women’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week for meets contested on Sept. 26 after her second-place performance at the Roy Griak Invitational. With the recognition, Ostrander became the second freshman in conference history to win Mountain West Women’s Cross Country Athlete of the Week honors twice in one season. She joins BYU's Kassi Andersen (2002) as the only two athletes to accomplish the feat.
