Men’s Cross Country Poll Moves Up in Regional GC

NEW ORLEANS – The United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) released its latest regional poll Tuesday, with the Bobcat men moving up one spot to seventh in the Southeast Region.

This is the third consecutive week Georgia College has been ranked in the poll, after being eighth the previous two weeks.

Mount Olive College remains atop the poll, with five Peach Belt Conference (PBC) schools on the top-10. Columbus State University and GRU Augusta sit second and third, while Georgia College is sandwiched between Flagler College and UNC Pembroke.

The Bobcats will be back in action this Friday, Oct. 4 when they travel to Aiken, S.C. to compete in the USC Aiken Invitational.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
