MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - The latest (Oct. 21) U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Poll had both the men's and women's teams of Georgia College & State University in the top 10 of the Southeast Regional Polls. For the second-straight week both Bobcat teams rested in their spots.

The women's team remained at the No. 9 slot. The women last participated in the Pepperdine Invitational Oct. 4 winning the event. On the men's side, the Harriers stayed at No. 10.

Georgia College is hosting the Peach Belt Conference Championships this weekend Oct. 25 at the West Campus Cross Country Course.
