    Augustana Cross Country: Vikings stay on top of Central Region rankings

    NEW ORLEANS - Despite shakeups around the nation in the fifth week of the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association region rankings, both Augustana teams held onto their top rankings in the Central Region rankings according to the USTFCCCA's Tuesday-morning release.

    Augustana did not send its entire teams to a meet this weekend as they prepare for the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Championships on Oct. 26. However, Cassidy Soli did win her first collegiate race at Caty's Run in Mankato, Minn. on Saturday. Harald Karbo was the highest men's finisher, taking third.

    The top nine of the women's central region remain unchanged with the Vikings holding onto the top spot for the 13th consecutive week, dating back to last season. Five teams from the NSIC join the Vikings in this week's ranking: Minnesota Duluth (second), University of Mary (fourth), Winona State (seventh), Minnesota State (ninth), and University of Sioux Falls reappears in the rankings at No. 10.

    The men equal the women's streak of 13 consecutive weeks atop the rankings as they hold onto their No. 1 ranking in the Central Region. Missouri Southern remained at No. 2 and the rest of the top five remained intact. Sioux Falls is the only other NSIC program appearing in the fifth edition of the men's rankings.

    The Vikings will remain idle this weekend as they prepare to host and defend the NSIC Championships on Oct. 26 at Yankton Trails Park.
