KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The University of Tennessee women's cross country team, which has forged an 88-5 record through four meets in 2005, reported in at No. 21 Monday in the fifth FinishLynx/NCAA Division I Women's Cross Country Poll of the season.
The Lady Vols, who were 18th a week ago, collected 137 points this week. League schools Arkansas (No. 17) and Georgia (No. 28) also garnered national recognition once again. Duke continued to top the charts, with the No. 1 Blue Devils grabbing all 13 first-place votes to tally 390 points. Stanford replaced Michigan at the number-two spot with 373, followed by the Wolverines (365), Notre Dame (352), Arizona State (338), Illinois (323), Columbia (307), Brigham Young (301), North Carolina State (285) and Colorado (279).
Head Coach J.J. Clark's Lady Vols, who finished third out of 34 teams at the Penn State University National Invitational on Oct. 15, are idle this weekend. They will return to action on Oct. 29, as UT travels to Columbia, S.C., to compete in the Southeastern Conference Championships and attempt defense of back-to-back league titles in 2003 and 2004.
