TEMPE, Ariz. - After the regular season's most prestigious national meet, both of Arizona State's cross country squads will look for top-10 finishes come Nov. 22 at the NCAA Championships. Both national poll reflect that as the latest rankings released this week slot the men's squad at ninth, its highest ranking ever, and the women 11th.

The men's team vaulted 10 spots after finishing fifth at the Pre-National Invitational in Bloomington, Ind., on Saturday. The women's team dropped from fourth after placing seventh Saturday, still a strong showing considering the fact that two of their top three runners ran while recovering from illness or injury.

The two teams both have a week off before the Pac-10 Championships, Oct. 30 in Los Angeles, Calif. Stanford, No. 1 in the women's poll and second in the men's rankings, is the heavy favorite. In all, the Pac-10 has five women's teams and four men's teams in the top 25.
