NEW ORLEANS -- After opening the season with back-to-back wins, the Carleton Knight Men's Cross Country team earned a No. 6 ranking in the USTFCCA poll, it was released Wednesday. Carleton is the third-highest MIAC team in the poll, and the Knights showed the biggest improvement in the rankings, jumping four spots from a No. 10 preseason ranking.
The Knights won their second-consecutive title last weekend at the Les Duke Invitational, defeating regionally ranked Wartburg (No. 4) and Grinnell (No. 9) in the process. Carleton will return to action this weekend, as they make the short trek across town to compete in the St. Olaf Invite.
