Boise State Broncos Cross Country Team Advances From #20 To #7 in This Week's Poll

Boise State's women's team moved from #20 to #7 this week.

In an exclusive preseason interview with BroncoCountry.com, Boise State cross country coach Corey Ihmels stated that one of the goals of his team was to finish in the national Top 10 every year.  The Lady Broncos took a giant step forward this week when they were ranked #7 in the nation in the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches of America poll.

Boise State was #20 last week--that 13-position jump came to be because the Bronco women finished first at the Roy Griak Invitational, trouncing defending national champion Michigan State by 79 points.

“It was outstanding,” Ihmels said. “Probably one of the best performances we’ve had as a program. It’s an exciting time for the women’s team, and we are really looking forward to continual improvement throughout the season.”

Boise State faces another important test when they travel to Madison, Wisconsin next week to compete in the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational.
