KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Not running in any events since the last NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 Poll cost the Oregon Tech women one place as they slipped from No. 9 to No.10 in the third edition of the 2019 Women’s Cross Country Top 25 Poll, released Thursday morning by the NAIA office.

“It has been a good training period without racing the last few weeks,” said Head Coach Jack Kegg. “But the athletes are excited to show the results of their work next week.  I am grateful that we have held our position during this time, and believe that we are where we need to be to push our way up in the ratings and secure at-large berths to the national meet for both teams.
