Women’s Cross Country Stays at No. 25

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second straight week, the Baker University women's cross country team stayed at No. 25 in the NAIA Women's Cross Country Coaches' Top 25 poll.

Baker has finished as a team in the Top 10 in all five of its meets this season including two second-place finishes and a two first-place finishes.

NOTES: (All information dates back to 1999) No. 1 British Columbia is trying to become just the third school in NAIA history to begin the season ranked No. 1 and go on to win the national championship... Former member Simon Fraser (B.C.) accomplished this in 2004, 05, 06 and 07 and No. 3 Cal State San Marcos did so in 2011... Since 1999, only two programs have been ranked No. 1 for an entire season: Simon Fraser in 2005, 06, and 07 and Northwest (Wash.) in 2003... No. 13 Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) has been ranked among the Top 25 in 121 consecutive polls, dating back to Sept. 21, 2001... During that streak Lewis-Clark State has never been ranked among the top five teams... This season, Texas Wesleyan and Columbia (Mo.) each earned its first Top 25 ranking... Former-member Simon Fraser has the most all-time No. 1 rankings with 40... Following Simon Fraser are former-members Azusa Pacific (Calif.) and Cedarville (Ohio) with 18 each... Overall, 11 different programs have claimed the No. 1 spot in the poll... Two teams held the No. 1 ranking in 2012: British Columbia and Cal State San Marcos.
