TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State's women's cross country team vaulted to third in the latest FinishLynx Top 25 rankings, jumping 13 spots after winning its first two meets of the season. ASU's men's squad also moved up in the rankings, jumping four slots to No. 17 in the MONDO national rankings.

"I'm happy for our kids," said fourth-year head coach Walt Drenth. "But, other than some recognition for them, it doesn't mean anything. If we're third at the end of November, then I'll be excited."

ASU's women were ranked in the top 25 for the first time in school history just a year ago and the men didn't climb into the top 25 until this year. ASU dominated the women's field, including Arizona and Northern Arizona, in their first meet of the season and won the Roy Griak Invitational last week, besting then No. 1 BYU (not at full strength) and eight other ranked squads. ASU's men finished second in their first meet and eighth in a strong field at the Griak Invitational.
