The NJCAA national DI cross country week one polls were announced recently. Both the Spartan men’s and women’s teams were included in the rankings. The Spartan men, ranked tenth, are among five other Iowa community colleges to make the top 20. The Spartan women, ranked 13th, are also among several Iowa community colleges to be nationally ranked. The high concentration of Region XI colleges in the ranking is a true testament of the high level of cross country competition there is in Iowa.
