NEW ORLEANS - The University of Colorado men's cross country team held strong onto seventh-place in the latest USTFFCCCA Coaches' Poll, released on Tuesday.

The Buffs recorded 286 points in the poll, just 15 behind Iona and Portland, which tied for fifth. The CU women's team fell this week from 15th to 18th overall with 153 points. Wisconsin is the top team in the men's poll and Florida State took first in the women's poll.

CU's men and women are fresh off a pair of team victories at the 27th Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout. Junior transfer Jake Hurysz won the meet with the fourth-fastest time in course history (24 minutes and 34 seconds). CU's men finished 1-2-3-4-6 overall for a combined team score of 16 points (15 points in the Division I scoring). Blake Theroux and Martin Medina finished second and third, respectively, with the same time at 25:01. Pierce Murphy was CU's fourth harrier to cross the finish (25:21) and Hugh Dowdy was the final Buff to score, crossing sixth overall (25:24).

On the women's side, freshman Carrie Verdon led CU to the team title by placing third overall (21:03) in her first race in a CU uniform. Rachel Viger finished fifth (21:10), Jana Stolting took seventh (21:10) and Courtney Bouchet placed 11th (21:57). Camille Logan rounded out CU's score by placing 12th (21:58).

Hurysz and Verdon were both honored with the CU Athlete of the Week award for their performances.

The regional rankings were released on Monday. The women's team moved up to second and the men's team is still ranked third.

The Buffs are off until Oct. 13 when they will race at the NCAA Pre-National Invitational in Louisville, Ky.
