College XC Rankings: Week 7
There was no movement in The Armory's college polls this week as top runners worked out silently, preparing for this weekend's conference mayhem.
The Big East Conference will kick off the festivities at Vanny on Friday morning. The women run at 11 am with five nationally-ranked teams, led by No. 9 Georgetown and No. 10 Providence. The Hoyas were the surprise national champ a year ago while No. 22 Villanova won the NCAA crown prior to that. Among those vying for the individual title are 'Nova's Emily Lipari and Syracuse's Sarah Pagano.
The men's side has been down a bit in 2012 with No. 16 Syracuse the only squad among the nation's top 24, while Villanova and Georgetown are just outside of that. Notre Dame's Jeremy Rae and G'town's Mark Dennin are among those looking at the individual crown.
Here are The Armory rankings heading into the madness:Jack Pfeifer and Brett Hoover oversee these rankings with the aid of the USTFCCCA.
