For the first time in program history, the Michigan State women’s cross country team is ranked No. 1 in the NCAA Division I Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll, announced by the national office on Tuesday afternoon. The Spartans were ranked No. 2 in the Week 4 coaches’ poll on Oct. 7 and overtook previous No. 1 Michigan after dominating the field in last Friday’s Wisconsin Invitational, finishing more than 100 points ahead of second-place Arkansas (87-191). Georgetown, Oregon, Michigan and Arkansas rounded out the top-five of this week’s poll. Michigan State also moved into the top spot in the NCAA Great Lakes Regional Rankings.
